2004 was a year of Chemotherapy and bonding. I grew even closer to my loved ones, friends and coworkers. The support I received from so many was tremendous. My perception of God's presence in my life grew stronger and stronger and I started writing songs that had more to do with my unbreakable connection to our creator. I never feared death, and once I was in remission I went back to my life of work and music with renewed vigor. I hoped to get to the magic 5-year mark, but alas ... In 2009 the cancer returned. After some more Chemo, I was declared to be back in remission. Upward and onward. I continued to study music, and in 2010 I decided to start a record label with an amazing artist that would inspire me for the next 8 years.
