Why Do I Advocate For Mental Health? 
Mental Health is something I believe everyone should take seriously.  As a parent of two children, husband of 15 years, active duty military member that has battled with depression, National Christian recording artist, and mental health advocate. I'm all about helping and supporting people dealing with emotional stress, depression, and all things mental health. I've been helping people with mental health and wellness for a few years through my music, public speaking, private conversations, and emphasizing the importance of fitness. 

I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, in a drug house, a rough neighborhood and an unhealthy environment. Unknowingly, I practiced hiding my emotions, suppressing life's pains, and not dealing with stress. I wasn't aware of any help for dealing with my mental health. Eventually, I reached a point where life didn't matter anymore due to all the stress build-up and my lack of education on mental health awareness and available resources. I was later drawn to get help through Christian counseling and educated myself on how to battle stress and depression. After years of research, getting help, and bettering my mental health, I now want to help others as well.
