What is your artistic process?

Josh Pan is a music producer based in NY and one of the hardest working artists I know. When he came to visit LA for a couple days, I organized a little creative collab session so we could make music and play. Definitely check him out because this guy is too cool for school and he’s ALWAYS putting out new stuff. My friends are so talented.

I had the opportunity to perform at Anime Expo this year with the dance project Chemical X!  We performed the halftime show of Masquerade, the main cosplay event at Anime Expo. It was my first time, and it was crazy. I had so much fun and it was really cool to be surrounded by people who are so passionate about anime. The energy was real. 

Because beauty is everywhere, and everyday we have an opportunity to find it.

[The Power of Simply Asking]

The fastest way to get what you want is to simply ask for it. Sometimes we limit ourselves because we are afraid to ask for help or ask for what we want. Let go of those constraints and learn to ask shamelessly for what you want. Who knows? Maybe you will actually get it! 

SD + Summer = Win

Instead of letting our fears cripple us, we should view them as a natural part of the journey to growth.  Once we pay attention to what our fears really mean, we can let them be our guide to becoming our best selves.

Resistance doesn’t want us to grow, it wants us to stay the same. Resistance loves comfort. The War of Art has recently opened my eyes to how resistance can lurk everywhere in our lives, and if we’re not aware of it, we can let it get the best of us. Let’s empower ourselves and regain control over our lives—we have to fight and beat resistance every single day. That’s the only way we can win this war.
