As a musician, he has written and recorded five studio Hip-Hop/ Spoken Word albums as lead vocalist. Culminating in his “magnum opus” body of work “Champagne Ethos” released in June of 2023. This album was made in collaboration with the “Men of Extraordinary Talent” (M.O.E.T.

Most notably performing in Salerno Italy at the 100 Thousand Poets for Change World Conference in 2015. Born and raised in New York City, the influence of hip-hop’s golden era is reflected in every creation he makes. The raw unapologetic nature of the “Empire State” manifests as a stand out characteristic of his stage performances.
