Hey there! 

There are two main focuses to my work - The psychology of happiness and rap music. A little different, but that's what I know the most about! I'd love to have you join thousands of my other students. 

I studied psychology at the University of Utah and ever since then I've been interested in what creates happy, productive, friendly individuals. Over the last 6 years, I've cultivated an understanding of some of these principles and I'm happy to share them with you now.

"Best rap advice ever this helped me so much thank you" - Quote from an early student

I am also a rap and poetry coach that would love to help you take your lyricism and talents to the next level.

I have been rapping for over 10 years and teaching rap for 5 years. I've won several awards for both rap and poetry. For the last 4 years, I've been running a how to rap channel on Youtube that provides various tips and tricks for aspiring artists. 

 If there's ever anything I can do to help you, please let me know.
