Born on the south side of Chicago in 1989, I came from a family of creative people. But life didn’t start until my first psychedelic mushroom experience at the age of 16. It was my initiation, and was of profound significance. I’d awoken in a respect. But amnesia set in quickly. Leading to my interested in psychedelic culture and the artists, musicians, and thinkers that surround these transformative tools. Confronting and abandoning several addictions through self-administered psychedelic experiments inevitably led to overcoming a 5 year cigarette addiction and life long nail biting habit.
