EXPERIENCE

I started studying music at age 14 and composing/producing at age 18. I started making hip-hop rap music, but was always interested in studying music and blending genres. I was once told that I was "too musical" and that's when I started branching off into other genres. Alongside music, I was always into comedy. As my life would have it, I pursued stand-up comedy and writing alongside music. I also always shared a love of dance. Growing up with Cape-Verdean music, Reggae, and other dance oriented music, it's always been one passion that I've always only done because of it. Over the past 8 years, I also got into video production. Directing, filming, producing, it seemed to be a natural transition from what I already did. And after starting a successful business, being involved in others, I feel like I really have something to offer in all fields.

Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. Pele
