All of a sudden, anyone who is connected to a Brain Injury, their life becomes a little MoCrazy. A Brain Injury does shut some doors, but it also opens doors. This show will be talking to survivors, caregivers, therapists, anyone immediately involved with a Brain Injury to learn different ways to overcome this struggle and walk through new doors. Every single person who had a Brain Injury has new doors opened for them, take a leap of faith and walk through those doors.

At the age of 15 as a result of a suicide attempt, Spencer acquired a traumatic brain injury that changed his life forever. After an extensive hospital stay and literally years and years of therapy and of hard work he became who he is today.  I am very excited to talk with Spencer because he embodies the theme of my show.  No matter what happened in the past, you CAN create a life you love and are happy with if you are willing to take the time and put in the work to create the life you have dreamed of living.   

As part of Spencer’s therapy, his parents provided music lessons because he had an interest in music before his traumatic brain injury and his parents thought that would help his brain heal. Spencer has always been interested in art and music. Spencer lost friends after his TBI because he couldn’t walk or talk, but he had music.

Spencer listened to music all the time and noticed how songs related and connected with each other. Spencer thought it would be cool to mix songs together. So he taught himself how and today he is a very successful DJ performing with big artists in front of thousands.
