    Denver, Colorado May 14, 2022 ( - Why don't you give us some details about you and your story? How did you get to where you are today? I'll keep it short and sweet. Had a wonderful childhood with loving parents. At age 15 I was prescribed actuate for acne on my face, and my life changed forever. I had a severe reaction, and literally just stayed in bed all day thinking of ways to kill myself. Up to that point, I had many friends, was popular, and was the lead singer and guitarist for a rock band. Once I got on acutane, I lost everything. I lost everything and this is where, as a child, I was prescribed Prozac. For the next 18 years, I would take Prozac under the supervision of a primary care physician, and my dosage would be incrementally increased every 3 years. This drug inhibited my cognitive ability and I struggled with school, work, and relationships. I failed everything. Every job I got out of college, I was fired or quit every job after college, for not being able to mentally focus. My father who is a general practice physician not once had a psychiatrist look at my meds, or recommend I see a psychiatrist to evaluate my mental state. He encouraged my use of psychotropics and said maybe I shouldn't work in Information Technology. He said I should be a park ranger or firefighter. I felt very sick for 21 years. Got married and had a child. At age 36 I gave my life to Jesus Christ after almost dying in my home. He spoke to me, to my spirit. And told me to work with a psychiatrist to come off the three psychotropic meds I was on. I did. I came off under a psychiatrist's supervision. Against the wishes of my dad and my wife. I'm now free. A new human. Mentally, I've never had so much cognitive ability. I was never able to feel emotions on the drugs. I now feel so much peace, love, and joy... it's so wonderful. I started four LLC companies in California. And a blockchain / Metaverse company in Dubai. My wife didn't like that she could no longer control me. She filed for divorce from me. Kicked me out of the house. I was homeless in Hermosa beach for 2 months. I lived out of my car and surfed during the day. I recently moved to Dubai, and have set up an office in the Silicon Oasis and holding company here for my latest project, contract mint. I actually live in Nepal, but my companies are all based in Dubai. I'm limited to seeing my son because my wife is a Covid nurse and has a nutcase. She stays inside all day and doesn't go anywhere with my son because she is deathly afraid he will get Covid. I work hard so I'll see my son someday. To this day I get random messages from my family members telling me to get back on meds... they are in denial. I love my life, my God Jesus, and most of all my son. I have a book being published in 3 months, While I breathe, I hope. My ghostwriter and editor are in Mumbai and I'm traveling to see them tomorrow. Let's talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition? I currently have a portfolio of tech companies and projects I run. I also run a music management agency called Seraphim Music. We recently partnered with BMI Nashville and are now able to license music and collect royalties for our portfolio of EDM DJs. Honestly, I choose who I want to work with now. I'm my own boss. I have a master's degree in information technology security and I'm currently in a Ph.D. program at Liberty University for business management. If I get a bad vibe from someone I immediately shut them down... goodbye. done. 90 percent of people who reach out to me try to waste my time. I don't allow it.
