He is very grateful for the friends and family in his life and also the amazing support that has been shared to accomplish these dreams and goals.

“With the world of technology and global media growing ever so fast, we sometimes get lost and caught up with it all and forget what’s really important,” he says. “You have to believe in what you’re doing, get rooted and be present to move into a future with a world of passion and support for our surroundings.”
