I Help People H2H, Human-to-Human

The labels we have given ourselves and the ones given to us paint an image of ourselves to other people. We are judged by this image and automatically categorized by the person judging as either useful or useless.

Once you are classified as useless, it becomes difficult to change classification (similar to the caste system in India) amongst people who know you as “useless”.

My story is one of just that. Personal experiences in being viewed as useless to becoming noticed. Becoming noticed is the first step to becoming perceived useful. We are all useful, but others judge based on what they initially see and our actions instead of what we are.

Because we are human, our actions may not always align with who we are — our true selves. It is therefor our duty to do what we can to align our thoughts and actions.

We all have imbalances. Once we treat these imbalances (naturally), our actions begin to align with our thoughts in a consistent manner. 

It’s a beautiful thing.

I Made Something...

I wrote an article in early 2017 that I submitted to a local Buffalo, NY news website titled, “I Can’t Stay Silent Anymore”.

View article here:

I conclude it by saying:
“Hug your neighbor, quit being a hater.”

Which is the inspiration for this t-shirt.

The Works Of Play Of A Then Broken Mind

I lived & suffered from manic and depressive episodes from ~2007-2018. During this time I created works in the form of writing, graphics, moving pictures, etc…The following art in written and visual form explores the depths of emotions and thoughts I was feeling. My mind took me from delusions of grandeur to the depths of hell. This is the creative output of me trying to make sense of those thoughts. Thank God its not like this no longer…
