"I’m actually more of a visual artist than a sonic artist.  I’d been in art school since I was five years old, I was on national competitions since age 14 and I went to Art College.  I had three different scholarships and I went to the American Academy of Art, at that time I was still doing music and I had a record deal on the table when I was 19 years old and I decided to follow music completely.  But I always wanted to bring back that information of art, so that’s why it was always important in my videos and my album covers of mixing these two worlds and letting people know how important art was.”
