Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in New York and trust me it's the greatest city in the world. With so much to do and so many cultures here it's easy to get lost in it all. I see, that it's influenced my writing a lot. Everything I write, I write about New York and all that is out here.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing when my Aunt gave me my very own Diary in 97 for my 10th birthday. After that I was just writing every where and everything. I have so many books filled with poems, short stories, and lyrics. (yes at one point in my life I thought I was going to be a rapper)
