My Life


This is My Life, I live it, breathe it and pin it to the fullest. There is no such thing as in between with me, I have been able to do a lot of amazing things in my life, hard work does pay off. Nothing has been handed to me, I work hard to follow my dreams and heart. I am a midwest kid from a lower middle class factory neighborhood that stuck to his belief of never giving in and refusing to never give up , I go for it and I will get there. It’s the only way to live, to fully create and express yourself, to have a vision and follow through.
