Had the immense pleasure of attending and covering the 2017 Spoleto Music and Arts Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. Working with the Pulitzer Prize Winning Post and Courier provided great insight and experience. Over the course of three weeks I was lucky enough to cover a wide array of artists and events. Samples of the work are available to read below, enjoy.

Presenting the latest visual, Distant Mirage, off the recently released ‘Chronicles’ project. Shot and directed by Adelbert Street Productions. Enjoy, more work to come.
Today is the day, presenting the debut solo mixtape “Chronicles.” The songs on this project were created over past three years and cover a broad range of subjects from revolution to spiritual healing. This is a snapshot of a young man with a message trying to connect with the world. Listen like you’re reading a collection of short stories. Hope you enjoy, much more music to come this year.
Published a story covering the hip-hop scene in upstate New York. While it can be difficult for artists to be discovered, groups like Last Hope Entertainment are working hard to build something on the ground they stand on. Many artists flock to larger markets to chase their major label dreams, so it’s refreshing to see artists collaborating for a grassroots movement. Progress is a slow process, but longevity is the true reward.
Published an article on the Newhouse School website about “The Man Who Saw Too Much,” an independent Mexican film about crime photographer Enrique Metinides, who has gained a cult following in his 50 year career. The screening came as part of the 14th annual Syracuse University Human Rights Film Festival, which is organized by multiple schools throughout the university.
The song has been out for a bit, but “Candyland” is continuing to make internet waves. A few blogs including HipHopDX have picked it up and the feedback has definitely been positive. Music is the air so stay tuned for another drop as well as the upcoming “Chronicles” project.
