“I have had a passion for music all my life. The music takes me away and I get pulled into the sounds. It's amazing. I want to help upcoming artist exercise their potential and reach their goals. As an artist myself, I never had that opportunity until meeting my Label Manager and long-term business partner Ms. Tiffany Gaines, CEO/President of Shared Success Global/Worldwide Music Group. Over the years, I have learned that this is a very competitive industry. I’m a very hard worker and I’m looking for hard working individuals to be part of my team.”
