“I was born in New Orleans, and was raised by my mom across the street from the St. Thomas Housing Projects. Growing up, I struggled in school with academics, but found that I excelled in music and the arts. In New Orleans, it’s easy to surround yourself with music and art of all kinds – whether it’s things that I learned in school, saw in museums and galleries, or would notice in the people and the space around me. It wasn’t until I was in my late thirties that I was diagnosed with dyslexia. Being dyslexic accounts for the way I look at things and I am able to interpret things – words, shapes, and meaning.  While dyslexia is considered a disability, I consider it a boost to my abilities, and feel blessed that I am able to see the world the way that I do.”
