My life had started from a rocky start from then till now. I left my family at the age of 13 straight out from the high schools to the juvenile detention facilities from detention centers to the half way houses I started as a ward of the state. and the music that I fell in love with from an early age on ward was always in my face behind a glass as if the bright shiny piece of me was never to remanifest itself. Once I turned 21 I was released in to the streets of Tucson Arizona. I started out working at restaurant jobs from dishwashing to cooking and everything In between. after working at a grocery store I meet a man who now is a close friend to me. he gave me my first flute in Tucson that had carried me through the ruff patches that were soon to come. Living in Tucson had made me understand that the people is where the change occurs how I could change my outlook and effect others in the process in a positive way. After leaving the grocery store I set out each night on my own and played in the silence of the University of Arizona campus. My family has not been apart of the picture for the duration of my "exile" so providing for myself is something I learned quickly. it was during the harsh times that I needed this escape. For four years I played on the empty campus in the twilight of the day. that was my life, work, music, sleep, work. it wasn't until I found myself in a relationship with a woman from the university. I started to attend the open mic poetry group, I was to go up to perform a piece. As always when I became nervous I played outside with my eyes closed.
