I was never one to follow trends…it’s important to be yourself, that’s the key!” The Kid NextDoor studied Radio & TV production at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale IL; where he also developed his visual director skills. As a popular and active leader on campus, he became Director of the school’s student TV station, which presented him with another platform to create visual images that could be shared with the masses!

She wrote her first song at the age of 8 and recorded it at a local St. Louis studio in 2002. What started out as simple lyric writing became melodies, which became rhythm and that became her drive.
