Monday Music “LIVE” features some of your newest releases. What’s been your favorite part of this weekly series that you get to enjoy with your listeners?
It is an hour event to express my musicality, where people have this window of time to jump in to see the video together with me. The music will range from unreleased music to covers. It will occurs every Monday at 12pm PST on all of my social media platforms (IG, FB, Twitter, Youtube). I jump around and join each party 🙂

“Roller Coaster” details the exciting feeling of a new relationship. What inspired you to write this song?
I just love roller coasters as that is one of my favorite activities. So I thought, why not write a song about roller coaster because love is like a roller coaster.
Since your childhood revolved around your church choir, when did you first start writing and sharing your own songs?
I started writing and sharing my own music after I finished my Ph.D. program at MIT. I felt like now I had the freedom to express myself musically and still be a respected scientist too.
How long have you been a part of the California Worship Center?
What’s been your experience like being there? I have been part of this great church in North Hollywood for almost 4 years now. I love the fellowship I have with each of the church members and I enjoy ministering in music with the choir and praise & worship team. Our Pastor is Warryn Campbell and our First Lady is Erica Campbell who are both well known grammy award winning musicians in the music industry and wonderful people in general.
Are there any songs from your releases that are the most meaningful to you? Why?
I would say my first single “Marked and Scarred” because it was the story about the death of my grandmother.
Which song of yours is your favorite to perform or share with new listeners?
“Roller Coaster” because it gets the audience up dancing and participate in singing with the song as well.
What has been the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
Landing on the Billboard Charts!
What is your creative process when creating new music?
I just go with how I am feeling or take myself to the feeling behind the song. It can be an emotional journey, but it’s worth it with the finished product.
Catch us up with your life! Are you currently working on any special projects?
I am just doing “LIVE” virtual shows right now. I will get back to the studio once the virus crisis goes down.
