Paul Walker Dead at 40

People die everyday in this world, that’s mortality for you.  Every once and awhile I hear of an actor passing on which at times can bring about certain memories.  I can’t recall however, a time in which news of an actor’s death that upset me, other than Heath Ledger; who was someone else I connected […]

Tania Tapia is So Crucial Training

Tania Tapia is without a doubt one of the hardest working models I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.  Being in the industry myself and being a Personal Trainer I can definitely appreciate the hard work and dedication that someone like Tania puts in. Tania is one of the most loyal models and people […]

November 5th

As of November 4th I celebrated 9 months of sobriety and I am happy.  For an addict/alcoholic such as myself, everyday I remain sober is a miracle and gift.  I never thought I could stay sober for one hour let alone an entire day. Having mentioned that, I am 9 months clean and couldn’t have […]

Citrus Flush

How are you eating?  Where are you getting the information from?  We have to ask important questions like is this source reliable?  Does the source have anything to gain from force feeding a particular diet or supplement to us?  What is popular culture’s agenda by determining healthy criteria?

Detroit Institute of Arts

This weekend I decided to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts.  With over 100 galleries covering nearly 700,000 square feet of beautifully designed architecture, I was completely in awe from the moment I entered through a well crafted entrance I can not believe I have never been prior to this weekend especially since having worked previously across the street […]

8 Months Old

October 4th, 2013 I earned my 8th month of continued sobriety.  What a feeling to celebrate that day with close family (blood in, blood out).  Since my first experience being drunk and high I have never gone over 5 months sober.  I would call everything previous to now as periods of being a dry drunk […]

Dont Look Down

I first heard Skylar Grey on a few different features where she sang the hooks and instantly thought her voice was incredible.  Her delivery is passionate and often time haunting.  I have included two tracks with the official visual accompanied.  Both tracks extremely different, showing Skylar’s diversity and talent as an artist.         […]

This Is My Kingdom Come

I took this picture some time ago and knew I wanted to do something with it besides just keep it to myself. Sobriety has opened my eyes to new things, things I never knew existed. Today I heard a song for the first time and felt it was necessary to share it, especially with all […]

Wake Me Up

I have been so caught up and stubborn in my hip hop ways that I almost missed this summer’s anthem (according to me) by Swedish producer Avicii.  When I first heard the opening to this song it was reminiscent of a folk song but :40 seconds in the bpm kicked into overdrive and at 1:10 seconds […]
