A lot of people don't know this about me either. But I've been through probably a full 7 full years of therapy. I've been diagnosed with everything from severe depression, severe anxiety, and PTSD, until they finally decided I've been mis diagnosed and suffer from bipolar disorder. This caused me to have severe anxiety, depression, and feel like at times no one understood me. I lost a Lot of friends in this process. No one wants a crazy friend. Everyone I grew up with at one time or another could "no longer handle" me in their lives because I was "too much." And that's the thing with mental disorders. No one knows who suffers from them, but bands like @depechemode snd @stonetemplepilotsofficial_ always made me feel like I belonged. That's why 20 years later I dedicate my career to music. Because I know there are so many other young people in the world who have similar stories and I want them to know they can connect and move forward from their diseases as well. You don't have to be a victim of your surroundings or disorders. And you can most certainly grow into the man and woman that you were meant to be. This is one of the reasons music is so dear to me. Because at a times when I felt so lost it made me feel accepted and I hope kids these days have music role models like I did to make them feel "normal." So thank you Dave, and everyone who ever brought music into my life to make me feel like a normal person again.
@londonbridgemusic throwing down at our @spaceyacht takeover. He was one of my faves at Life is Beautiful! Who's going tonight for some house music? πŸ‘πŸŽΆπŸ“Έ: @wearenightowls

People don't always understand all that goes into a show to make it successful. From the booking, marketing, pr, execution, logistics, operations, and much more. But when you see the fruits of your labor with three massive sold out shows in one weekend like this, it makes all the hours, stress, and hard work worth it. I know it's probably a lot crazier working on a large tour or festival, but I'm humbled to work on these shows at @exchangela every week. Plus it was pretty rad to see my little brother get down in the moshpit for @flosstradamus & @boomboxcartel last Thurs! πŸ“Έ: @wearenightowls β€’

A lot of people don't know this about me, but my grandma brought me to the US when I was 5. I didn't know the language, had never visited the states, and didn't even recognize my parents when I first saw them because they had been living here for 6 months. As I got older I couldn't get a license or go on trips out of the country like all of my friends. Still I played sports, ran for ASB, wrote for the newspaper, and was part of the drama club in an attempt to feel like my peers. I graduated high school with a 4.2 GPA. My alien status made it difficult to obtain scholarships for college. I longed to go to journalism school in NYC. I cried at how unfair it was that despite my good grades and academics I wasn't able to go away to school like most of my friends. My parents pushed me to keep moving forward and through their hard work helped pay for my 4 year degree at CSUF. Finally in March of 2006 after our paperwork had been in the "process" for 10 years my parents and I became legal US residents. A year later I graduated from CSUF with a Bachelors in Communications and Minor in Business. I pursued my dreams as a journalist and got the opportunity to document the rise of electronic dance music for OC Weekly and LA Weekly. I even had a cover story in OC Weekly feat. Steve Aoki's rise to stardom. Eventually I landed at Exchange LA combining my passion for writing and dance music to do something I really love as the PR & Social Media Manager.

Now 27 years later, after countless years of waiting, lawyer fees, and stress, I'm finally a US Citizen today. Sometimes we take simple freedoms like the right to work, travel, vote, practice your religion, and pursue a higher education for granted. Not realizing there are so many people out there who do not have these opportunities. For all my friends still waiting for their immigration status to get resolved, for all the #Dreamers brought here as children by their parents, don't give up hope. Continue to fight, pray, pursue your dreams, and do good in the world because good things happen to good people. #immigrantsmakeamericagreat
Life is like a carnival ride. It has its ups, its downs, and all its twerks. But we all know that in the end it's full of fun and worth the wild ride. 🎑🎒πŸŽͺ #daretofair

Had a blast at the #lacountyfair eating all the foods, petting all the animals, riding all the rides, drinking all the IPA's, playing all the games and even getting a henna tattoo. Thanks @lacountyfair for the tix! πŸ“Έ: @discoxjay β€’
