My debut album, True Design, is about the artistic nature of the universe. The world in every sense has an element of art, connecting us to God; therefore, we're all a part of something greater than ourselves. Given the current global climate, it is clear to me that our plans have no weight against nature. I desire to live life with this outlook---hoping to be a light that contributes to making today less burdensome through music.
