Today at work, I had the opportunity to talk to some of my female colleagues and after discussing relationships and intimacy, I was quick to learn that many of these ladies had rarely reached an orgasm. How could they allow this? Excuses like, “He came first and then it was over,” or “I thought something was wrong with me” were popular amongst them. While I had read stories about women who had never orgasmed in their life, I, seriously, couldn’t believe I had just come across some. I was appalled!

            This year has undoubtedly been one of my most challenging years EVER. The lessons I’ve learned have been extremely valuable and have made me a much wiser, stronger human being. For that, I am extremely grateful. Working nonstop was my routine for years and for the first time in my life, I took a much needed break to reflect. I invested my energy and time into activities that made me happy and in turn,

It was a gray and chilly October Monday morning. London had awoken. I walked out of my hotel room, hopped on my Uber, and headed towards RICH MIX in the Shoreditch art district to attend a one week Mind Your Own Business crash course organized by Amy and her staff. After being selected to attend this music event back in July, the moment had finally arrived to meet the fearlessly bold and outspoken woman I had followed for about four years now. Her accomplishing many remarkable benchmarks in a primarily male dominated industry through her incomparable strength and determination were inspiring. As an androgynous male in the business, I knew too well the meaning of working twice as hard for what you truly want in order to be taken seriously in this game. Being raised by many strong, formidable women in my family made me respect all that she’d managed to accomplish through her own will and hard work. Her honest tongue was a breath of fresh air, and I was ready to soak in the knowledge she promised to deliver, and BOY, did she deliver!

When it comes to trends, it’s no surprise that the LGBT community is usually way ahead of the curve. Mainstream media usually ends up adopting ideas brought forth from the depths of our community towards future campaigns. Below, I present my case (with receipts) where I've unknowingly helped start trends that have been widely incorporated into the world. Truth is, in this business, sharks who "borrow" or are "inspired" by hard-working, independent artist are prevalent and take full advantage of the creativity presented without giving due credit. My suggestion to everyone in this industry would be: copyright your work, keep your receipts, and don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. Check mine below.

  • Summer of 2014, I began branding myself through my Blue Lips and in 2017, I released my album “Blue Lipstick” to further cement my look. Fast forward to 2018 and Tom Ford is implementing “Blue Lipstick” in their beauty line by having Cardi B as the face for the product.


At my now, thirty two … uhhmmm… I mean twenty five years of age… I find that life continually surprises me with its unexpected twists and turns. When looking a little deeper into the person that I truly am, you’ll find that just like you, I have goals, challenges, and emotions that motivate me to work harder towards creating a satisfying life. If I were to describe myself, I’d simply state that I’m a highly sensitive being who avoids drama and likes to keep my private life private. Essentially, we all want to live a happy and fulfilling life, and on my journey, I’ve learned that while we’re all handed different cards, one must learn to play to our strengths while working on our weaknesses. Sometimes we’re afraid of what people might think or how they’ll react to certain things we’ll do or say, but truth is, no one knows what you want and what makes YOU happy except you! Life even forces us to try something different at times to force us to learn new things. We must live it to the max!

Brave- that’s the best way I can describe my parents who in their early teens left behind all they knew in hopes of finding better opportunities that’d help them create a better life. Honorably working their way up by always giving 110% of themselves to whatever job they committed to along their journey, sacrifices were necessary to provide my siblings and I the opportunities they never had available. We received an education, went to college, and grew up in a totally different environment from theirs. Listening to stories of how challenging their childhood, teenage, and early adult years were are hard to digest and fully comprehend. Through hard work, sweat, and tears, they built a foundation that allowed me to take risks and do all that I have been able to with my life, and for that and so much more, I’m ETERNALLY grateful. If you’ve ever met me in person,

                         We live in a masculine dominated world where the feminine energy has long been submissive. I find it imperative that in order to create a harmonious life, one must balance these energies out for as evidenced by the current state of the world, the male mentality has, stubbornly, gotten us into wars, hindered negotiations, and prevented us from working together as one. The feminine touch, however, gives beauty, gentleness, empathy, and sensitivity a chance to help litigate and resolve issues that prevent the human race from progressing. Cue my entrance. In this current phase of my artistry, my whole demeanor is about celebrating the feminine energy. Not only are women extremely beautiful, but STRONG beings that help bear children, hold a household together, and beautify this planet. They’re the nurturers and the givers of the world. In conclusion, women are nothing short of amazing, and I am all about that!

This morning I read an excerpt from an article where an Egyptian man claimed that his blood was worthless compared to other peoples in the world, and I couldn’t help but feel saddened by his perception for he couldn’t be further from the truth. While I DON’T know this man personally, I knew he was EGYPTIAN- a land RICH in history with GREAT pharaohs and kings that reigned and created amazing things throughout time. I’ve been to this BEAUTIFUL country of his and have seen with my own eyes an unbound potential for growth and prosperity. Unfortunately, certain circumstances in life have, perhaps, made it challenging for him to live a life he wishes to have, however, he’s not invaluable to my eyes

You are not alone.

Like you, many others are going through similar situations. I’ve discovered that life throws them at you to not only help build your character and strength, but also, to help you understand others and prepare you with these lessons that will aid you in your prospective future. Blessings in disguise.

You are not alone.


            It’s said that in order to lead a happy, fulfilling life, one must nurture those things that move our soul. Recently I’ve been unlearning things I’ve been taught by society along the way and trying to get to know myself a bit more to truly UNDERSTAND who I am so I can attain my ultimate potential and help give the best of me to the world. I had to go back to being that mischievous, little kid who knew no harm and ugliness in the world; I dug deep and this is what I found.

A few days ago, I came to a powerful realization. For years I’d been trying to fit into a mold that didn’t seem to quite fit me. I hesitantly attempted to move to LA in hopes of fueling my musical career, tried to get heavy industry power player’s attention by unsuccessfully reaching out to them various times, and attempted to impress people who really didn’t deserve my time or energy. As I rested in bed, I thought to myself, “Why am I chasing these things?” Yes, I want to establish a successful artistic career, however, I’m selling myself short. I’ve always opted to do my own thing regardless of what everyone else seemed to do, yet in this situation, I’ve moved with the crowd. Then I thought, “If I just let myself be, I’ll attract the right people and right things to me.” And so, I came to the following conclusion: No more chasing; if anyone wants my time, energy, and creative touch, they shall come directly to me. Why? Although I’m not a L’Oréal ambassador

A last minute decision to attend the Latin Billboard awards would lead me to meet many amazing individuals in the spectacular Sin City show. It all began Wednesday morning as I made my way to the Venetian for conference sessions held in the upper ballrooms. I was originally scheduled to be a seat filler, however, as I walked in all glammed out, I heard the organizer state to one of the assistants that there were no more spots left, so I proceeded to put into play game plan number two by falsely claiming to be a correspondent for People in Español. When you’re a freelancer, on the hustle, and eager to learn, this route not only makes for a great story, but is one to take

            Throughout my years of existence, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many different countries around the world where I’ve seen first-hand the diversity and forms in which Earth displays her majestic beauty. I find it imperative that we all take individual responsibility and action towards keeping our fragile planet hospitable and clean by being more consciously aware of our actions. We must aim to reduce our carbon footprint while protecting our water, being energy efficient, eating local/organic produce, protecting the bees, eating less meat, and ending plastic pollution. We must resolve to do all that we can to leave this planet we call Earth a little cleaner and greener for generations yet unborn. We must “try to leave the Earth a better place than when we arrived.” We must honor, love, and respect her, for her generosity and kindness in giving us all an opportunity to life. Last time I checked, hospitable planets are hard to find. Happy Earth Day!

It was April 17th, 2018, and I was scheduled to appear for jury duty in downtown Dallas. Hoping I wouldn’t get selected, I dressed down for the part. Comfy sweat pants, a “Cowboys” hat, fitted light jacket, and tennis shoes clothed my body. While the opportunity to experience a live trial seemed thrilling, this was NOT the week! My “Pink Panther” shoot was less than twenty-four hours away, and with the room rented, actors hired, and extras scheduled, pushing back the date was no option for me. I waited and waited as the lawyers deliberated by asking all forty of the potential jurors questions until finally, their twelve were chosen. Out of the judge’s mouth, my name was pronounced first. I was directed into the courtroom where a trial would shortly commence, and immediately after beginning, the only thought that kept running laps through my mind was how could I salvage this shoot? I knew I had to act quickly, for at this point, there was no turning back.

            Just because one isn’t interested in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you. It’s no secret that there is a lot of pain and fear spawning within the human race, however, feeding that only creates more chaos. As an old Native American story goes, there are two wolves fighting inside of us all- the wolf of fear/hate and the wolf of love/peace. Which one comes out victorious? The one you feed. Blame has been thrown against immigrants for jobs not being available to the American citizens continuously throughout the past year, however, we couldn’t be farther from the truth. The recent rise in cheap yet efficient labor via robots have displaced thousands of jobs worldwide and will continue do so in the following years to come. The question is- are YOU ready?

One of the things I enjoy the most about concerts besides experiencing the artist unleash their talent upon the fans and spectators is being brought into their creative world. Whether it’s a simple stage with the band or a grand production with fireworks, LED Visuals, dancers, and the whole shebang, it’s always fascinating to witness what an artist is about. While great visuals are ALWAYS a plus, they're not necessary when


            Growing up, beauty appeared to be defined by individuals endowed with colored eyes and/or colored hair. It was typical to see artists, actors, and entertainers with such features on Mexican TV Novelas, American shows/movies, and album covers. My brown eyes, black hair, and tan skin inferior, or so I thought. With age comes wisdom and I’ve found that being fully comfortable in one’s skin is something that one really begins to embrace during the late 20’s, early 30s. While an internal sense of confidence gradually grew day by day, it wasn’t until Kim Kardashian

 While I think traveling is the best investment anyone could ever make, there are some countries in the world that due to their political stance and views on the LGBT community I have no desire to explore. My incident in Tangier, Morocco where I nearly lost my life made me realize how much I treasure it and that I would NEVER purposely put it at risk. The following countries are some I will NOT be going to anytime soon:

 1.     African Countries including: Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Senegal, Tunisia

It’s such a shame because I actually am a HUGE fan of Africa and would LOVE to explore the culture, people, and food throughout the continent, but due to documentaries I’ve seen and my understanding of it being a very different culture, I choose not to step foot in any of the listed countries above or their neighbors.

Reggaeton in Paris? YASSSSS!!! You know I had to make a presence at Maluma's concert to fire up those those latin roots of mine. I must say- I HAVE NEVER seen a crowd as LIT as this one. ELECTRIC, FIERY, and POSITIVE best describe the energy created at the venue; EVERYONE was lost in the music! After following his career for a few years since his rise to stardom in Columbia,

            2017 has been a year of transition for me. I quit my 10 year job, ended relationships, made some major moves, and am now taking an overdue musical hiatus. It’s been about leaving behind ideas, people, and things that weigh one down and prevent one from blossoming and growing into a better version of oneself. This year has undoubtedly been one where I’ve learned to fully respect, love, and appreciate what it is I bring to the table.

A year after postponing her Unbreakable tour, Janet Jackson is BACK and better than ever! Not only did she impeccably SLAY the choreography she was doing over 20 years ago (Rhythm Nation, Control, If), but she brought her smile, charisma, and social messages to the stage. The ONLY word that comes to mind when describing her artistry: ICONIC! The wait has been TOTALLY worth it, and I couldn’t be happier!!!

After coming across an ad seeking "magical" performers for Keyshia Cole, I decided to take a chance and see what would happen. So, I drove to the designated audition location in Burbank, California, parked my car, put my 7-inch black, sexy platform heels on, and walked out towards the studios making an entrance like a star. I grabbed my assigned number, thirty six, and waited for about twenty minutes before being ushered into studio twelve along with the others were we’d learn choreography to a Cole song. An hour passed, and the routine, difficult to perform with HUGE heels, got better with each passing second. Keep in mind, this was my first audition EVER in the Los Angeles area. Chris Grant, choreographer to many stars, did an EXCELLENT job instructing us; I felt so comfortable with him and ultimately, proud of myself even if a "gender blender" wasn't what they were seeking. I saw this as an opportunity to learn and experience, and felt extremely humbled. After the dance session concluded, I decided to make my way up to Chris and give him my resume explaining to him that I wasn’t going to audition for any of the parts, but that I was interested in any other jobs regarding logistics or operations. I explained to him that I had just moved to LA about three weeks ago and that, quite frankly, I was searching for a job. I handed over my information, thanked him for his time, and after confidently explaining that I possess various skills that could help them successfully accomplish their goals with the up and coming tour, I proudly walked towards my car. In conclusion, today I did something I would have never done in Dallas and thus, was reassured I’m in the right place at this moment in my life. My only plan as of now is to use every opportunity that I come across to knock on new doors and successfully expand on my artistic career. First audition in LA- done, and I'm looking forward to whatever comes next, so BRING IT ON LA!!!!

It’s officially been one week since I housed myself in LA and so far, it’s been an interesting experience. Going running every other day at Runyon Canyon has somewhat eased the process, however, “reality” hasn’t quite sunk in. I’m still trying to acclimate and find where I fit in the “Hollywood” world and am patiently awaiting where the universe takes me. What initially began with only one goal has transformed into something broader. Yes- it’d be amazing to perform on stage and be the world renown, talented, show stopping touring artist that I’ve always sought and known to be, but the diversity in my portfolio showcases various facets of my creativity, and I refuse to limit myself. At this exact moment in my life, I am awaiting to see which avenue will pull me towards its direction. Lots of groundwork submitting for different positions and going to various creative mixers to meet other talented individuals has occupied a lot of my time. Freelancing into the creative field can be a rollercoaster ride, and I’m mentally prepared for that. I find myself convincing and reminding myself through intense conversations why I am cut out for this and thus, why I will be successful. After all, it’s easier to amplify the flaws than accept the beauty. Apart from grace, kindness, intelligence, drive, and ambition, belief in oneself and faith are my key ingredients. One thing that remains the same is my focus to be successful, happy, and making money. I haven’t come this far by risking it all to fail miserably and quite honestly, there’d be no greater feeling than that of giving back and making my parents proud! So I continue along my way. This is week one in LA.

The only time one should look back is to see how far one’s come along. As I sit here in front of my computer on my 31st birthday overwhelmed by all the love friends and family members have shown, I can’t help but reflect upon my life grateful that I’ve made it this far. It hasn’t been an easy journey.

11,315 days, 271,580 hours, 16,294,824 minutes, 977,689,440 seconds… that’s 31 years’ worth of time in different measurements and EVERY second counts. It’s been one CRAZY roller coaster ride with highs and lows, however, I’ve survived!

 It was 6PM and the simple jeans and t-shirt I wore seemed like too much clothes for such a warm, yet beautiful sunny day. I arrived at a local self-service car cleaning location in the suburb city of Grand Prairie, TX prior to heading out to meet with a dear friend of mine in downtown Dallas. Being that I had been out of the country for two months, a little more than just car dust had settled within the confines of the vehicle I own. I parked my car, stepped outside to place the quarters in the vacuum machine, and noticed, after inserting them in the allocated slot, that it was not working. I give it a quick little slap to make sure the quarters had gone through, but nope, it didn’t work, so I, then, hopped in my car, moved to another kiosk-like spot, and inserted three more quarters. This time, it functioned. I vacuumed all dirty floors and seats leaving it spotless. Once I was done, I noticed a young Hispanic gentleman aged anywhere between 21-26 come to the left of me with a nice, big smile asking me if I had change. I responded that I didn’t and only had one quarter left, but that he could have it. I turned to my right and noticed another gentleman pointing a silver gun towards me. This is when I knew something wasn’t right.

            We tend to perceive celebrity figures who have successfully made a living out of their artistry as spoiled, egotistical, and demanding. However, with time, I’ve learned to understand that these individuals put their creativity, soul, and life on the lines in order to help bring something magical into this world. There’s nothing more that I love about an artist than humility and creativity, however, anyone who has gotten to a point in their careers like accomplishing the creation and release of a number one hit song or album on the charts has to overcome some stressful schedules and pressure-filled obstacles most of us will more than likely never fully come to understand. It’s a treacherous journey full of tough life decisions and lessons with stressful moments particularly since everything is magnified. Many times, celebrities cope with these overwhelming situations through mediums like alcohol, drugs, and sex and while I do believe there are ulterior ways of dealing with such a demanding, lonely career, I can understand why they’d chose to escape via these methods.


People always ask me, ”How is it that you can travel so much?” The answer is simple; you’ve got to do your research- good deals are available all over the net! Now a days it’s a lot easier to make an amazing trip happen if you have the time, savings, and no attachments or dependents and while having one or two of those can make a big trip a little bit more challenging, you must not rule out any possibilities, because with good planning and research, you may be able to make it happen. You don’t have to be rich to travel and experience something new and great. Feeling adventurous? Keep on reading!!!

1. Hostels- Hostels are always a great choice for solo travelers like me. Why? Well because they offer a safe haven full of individuals like you and I who, also, travel alone. It’s a great way to make new friendships and experience a place you’ve never navigated through as they usually offer city tours and activities that are bound to make your experience much richer. My booking site of choice is; What I love about this site is that customers who stay at the hostels provide great reviews that help you decide which location fits within your budget. I ALWAYS read reviews prior to booking. Plus, pictures are essential to my elimination process.

1. Language- In high school, I managed to enroll in a French class for three consecutive years and while I did learn quite a bit, unless the language is continuously practiced verbally and manually then one is likely to forget a great percentage of it. Utilizing it in your everyday life is how one can dominate and perfect the pronunciation of any new language, and diving head first into a country that forces one to speak it is ideal. Right from the get go, I noticed that the French language was spoken in a lot of the Moroccan cities where I depended on my Spanish like a crutch. I love a good challenge, and this, I thoroughly enjoyed! Made me feel alive! ^_^

2. Clothes- the Moroccan clothes are very vibrant and colorful. Like I previously mentioned in one of my blogs, YSL had come to this beautiful country for inspiration for one of his earliest collections and I, too, came seeking some great finds. Of course, I found a bit of what I was looking for, and will soon put my little twist to it (as I always do) to give you something visually refreshing like lemonade on a hot summer day.

After a couple months short of my ten year anniversary working for a corporate American company which has provided me with an opportunity to do so much throughout these past few years, my heart and soul have felt an increasing necessity to break free and dedicate 100% of my time and energy to my art. The more I travel, the more I realize there are a MILLION possibilities in life and working for corporate America isn’t exactly where I see myself. I want to take a leap of faith, detach myself from this machine I've been a part of, and explore other self sustaining options. Why such a risky move now? I’ve always been a risk taker in life and while this has got to be one of the biggest I’ve yet taken, I know I have SO much to offer as a human being and artist; put simply- I believe in me!

My first Moroccan experience left a sour taste in my mouth. On July of 2016, I arrived in Tangier hopeful and excited to explore a country of which I had heard many wonderful things.  Little did I know, I’d experience what would be forever remembered as one of my worst travel experiences nearly losing my life. After much consideration and thought, I decided to give Morocco one more chance where this time, instead of boldly walking into a country who saw me unknowingly imposing my sexuality during its holy month of Ramadan, I’d lay back, take it easy, and try to blend in as much as possible to learn and grasp as much as I could about this country. I’d begin in the city of Marrakesh and work my way up to Fez for no more than a week where I’d hope to dive and get to explore its rich, vibrant culture. While I was quite nervous to embark on this trip, I felt it necessary to confront the fear it left behind so that I could heal and grow as a human being. And so, I went.

Whether it’s sitting at the table or enjoying tapas, eating in Spain is a pleasure due to the culinary universe that offers a variety of options ranging from fried dishes, fishes, meats, or legumes. Let’s take a stroll through the provinces where I had the delight of tasting their traditional plates.



In Sevilla, the king of plates is the “Gazpacho” which is elaborated entirely with vegetables and olive oil (aka green gold due to the quality and benefits it contains for the human body.) Garbanzos and vegetables (Puchero), snails, eggs “a la flamenca,” and the “Tortilla de Patata are also other close favorites of the Sevillanos.


Andalucia, in the southern part of Spain, contains a great mixture of cultures that form one big melting pot of individuals contributing to the making of an extremely rich and diverse region of the country. Its geographical layout includes ocean cities, mountain valleys, and farmland sites where a fusion of the Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim worlds collide. For over 800 years, Muslims dominated the region until the Roman Catholics came and conquered the country. They then decided to take the already beautiful structures in place and add a Catholic touch to them. On this trip, I’ve had the opportunity of seeing four beautiful yet different provinces that help make up this southern section of Spain: Seville, Cordoba, Huelva, & Granada. Below are my experiences and suggestions which I hope will help aid any future travelers planning to explore this beautiful region.

In times of such desperation where rights seemed to be challenged and stripped left and right, my very presence as an ANDROGYNOUS, gender fluid artist is a political statement. With Trump secretly working on dismantling LGBT, women's, and minorities' rights in this wonderful country of America, I myself must stand amongst others as a beacon of hope for the future of my people.

While 2016 has had many unexpected world wide surprises, for me, it was a year of lots of personal and artistic growth. In this blog, I review the experiences that defined the past 363 days for me.


This year I had the opportunity to travel to several different countries I had never had the chance to explore. The artist in me seeks new challenges which in turn helps inspire new songs and creations via experiences lived. I was able to Vlog about my trips and create videos (25 total) I’ll treasure for the rest of my life, and I'm very proud of this accomplishment. These are the places I was able to visit in 2016

Within the last couple of months, I was able to witness and explore an array of creative diversity from three artist I love and adore by attending their concerts. Their names: Beyoncé, Britney Spears, & Lauryn Hill. 

As detailed in one of my previous blogs, Beyoncé puts on one heck of a show. She dances, sings, & mounts a spectacular performance that keeps one entertained from beginning to end. The lights, the dancers, the cinematography- what was there not to enjoy about it? Years in the entertainment business have schooled and helped her polish her craft while bringing out the best within her. I must say, I had a phenomenal experience watching her perform at the New Orleans’s Mercedez-Benz Superdome arena.

Beyoncé has always been an entertainer who has captivated millions with her performances. I, for one, LOVED her first album as a solo artist titled “Dangerously in Love.” As years have progressed, her talent, drive, and ambition have evolved into something much greater. The last two albums respectively titled “Beyoncé” & “Lemonade” have recaptured my interest in her musical works and thus, prompted me to purchase a ticket to her Formation Tour. While I knew I was in for a great spectacle, I didn’t know how fantastic it’d actually be.

  • Staging/Production- In the center of the stage stood a white cube approximately 6 stories high where video montages and footage of her performing live on stage would be broadcasted for the stadium audience to view. The compilations were amazing and the live footage was extremely crisp and clear!! Loved it!

  • Intelligence- Carrying a conversation on any topic that goes beyond the superficial is extremely attractive. It takes more than a hot body, nice smile, and pretty face to captivate me. An education (collegiate or university) is always greatly respected! I’m a sucker for geeky yet athletic guys. 
  • Eyes- They say eyes are the window to the soul, and I certainly believe that. This is usually the first physical attribute I pay attention to before scoping out the rest. If the eyes don’t grab my attention with their mystery and/or color, then I’m not sure about the rest. They must be strong, bold, and piercing, able to speak with out a word being whispered. Those are the ones I love the most.

Aishwarya Rai

1. Shopping- India is a shoppers paradise. Why? Well, not only does your money go really far, but there is a variety of unique selections one can purchase at various bazaars and stores. I definitely splurged a bit and bought many unique, wonderful pieces which you’ll see me using in the future. India’s richness and vibrancy is properly reflected in people’s attire. In New Delhi, Connaught Place was one of my favorite go-to destinations. There are various little shops on the outskirts of this area where one can find some pretty amazing deals. Jaipur had a lot of great fabrics as well. The main shopping area in the old part of the town had much to choose from and I definitely went a little cray. In Jodhpur, I found a shop where I was able to purchase some very fine quality fabrics that were all done by hand; very luxurious and gorgeous for a great price. While I only managed to travel through the northern part of India, I can confirm that the northern area will have you covered style wise.

1. Indian Visa- An Indian Visa must be purchased in order to enter the country prior to arrival if you’re a citizen of the USA. There are several options offering different spans of time and amount of entries in/out of the country, so choose wisely. If you purchase an ETA Visa, when you arrive at the airport, you must go through the ETA Visa checkpoint and not your normal passport control desks where they will then proceed to scan your fingers and take a picture of you before allowing you into their country.

2. Flushable Wipes- Some places don’t have toilet paper so unless you want to be using your hand, I suggest taking flushable wipes.

Day 1 (July 5th, 2016)

It’s July 5th, 2016 and I’m sitting here in Tangier, Morocco playing back through a myriad of troubling scenes and emotions which I experienced in an unfortunate event. Yesterday, as per custom, I decided to slip into a nice little outfit and head on out to the mall that’s right next door to the Hilton Garden Inn where I’m staying at to not only go souvenir shopping, but also, to see if I could find any new outfits which I could use to capture artistic shots in a country which I was so looking forward to trekking. After convincing myself that I shouldn’t be fearful, I took a step outside my door, whispered a quick little prayer, and didn’t look back. I walked out into the streets with confidence and strength, but little did I know it’d all be put to the test. As I walked into the mall, I immediately noticed several individuals stopping to watch. The minutes passed and more and more people looked at me like the phenomenon I believe I am. I thought, perhaps they’ve never seen someone as exotic and refined as myself. I swam through the crowds like a swan on a lake and continued to search to see what it is I could find in Morocco that I couldn’t find no where else. Who knew I’d be handed my answer so quickly...


6 years later and our paths have, once again, crossed. This past Friday, Kelis came by the DFW area to promote her delicious “Bounty & Full” spices and I must say, it was a glorious day! Not only has she grown so much as a human being in the last few years, but she’s also shifted her attention from the artistry of music to cuisine. A clear passion and love for food was evident as I approached her station inside my local Central Market as she happily handed out samples of dishes she had prepared while passionately explaining details and ingredients contained in each portion. As I approached the counter with two CD’s in hand which I had bought years ago, my heart palpitated like never before. I was so nervous, yet excited and couldn’t wait to give her a hug and show her how much I REALLY admired her.

Immigration from third to first world countries is prevalent throughout the planet, but when analyzing the situation and searching for the root of the problem, one can come to understand that in a competitive capitalistic society where progress, efficiency, and brotherhood are counterproductive to the system, a being's desire for a better life innately burns within the human spirit, and therefore, the search for opportunities and the desire to climb the latter will never cease to exist. 

Trump's controversial words in which he states that Mexico is "sending people that have lots of problems" to America including rapists, drug runners, and other criminals fails to recognize that the Unites States itself has a population of NO Latino descent whatsoever who themselves are racist, drug runners, and criminals. As a matter of fact, every country faces the exact same problems such as these. Are there issues within the US that need immediate attention? ABSOLUTELY!! I'm a firm believer that a reduction in governmental involvement in other country's affairs is imperative for us as a nation to progress and focus on issues that will improve our economical and social standing. Let's not forget, this country was originally settled by immigrants from Europe who helped annihilate a grand portion of the Native Americans who peacefully lived in this country for thousands of years. The US is a melting pot where dreams have the potential of becoming a reality through hard work and that's what makes it so unique. It's a place where freedom, liberty, and innovation were celebrated, but times do seem to have changed.

Mykonos, Santorini, Rome, Naples, Berlin, Paris, & London- an ambitious trip that I successfully and independently achieved all by myself. After a couple months of intricately planning this expedition in which I sought to conquer markets outside of the US, the day had finally come and it was time to put the foot to the pedal and GO! Was I nervous and scared? Absolutely!!!! This was the first big promo trip I had EVER planned by myself and while I did encounter a few bumps on the road, a positive attitude helped me pull through each situation while having fun along the way. After knocking on many doors in the US for years and not getting where I should/ want to be, I decided this would be a great career move. Open minds and a progressive attitude are welcomed and celebrated in Europe hence the reason for this campaign. God knows I've worked super hard in the US and only hope that new doors leading me to where I should be successfully open up. In conclusion, never be afraid to take the jump off the cliff for only then will you learn to build wings as you fall so you can fly high like the Phoenix and soar into the sky like a King/ Queen. Never give up on your dreams and most importantly, believe in yourself completely and have faith. Thank you guys for your continuous support and remember, my album "God's Gay Sun" is now available for Pre-Order off of iTunes; spread the word!! To all the wonderful souls I met alone the way- thank you for your contribution in making this trip unforgettable. Love you all!!! <3


The follow-up to "6" is a solid, classic body of work that effortlessly toggles through seduction and love with a diverse pallet of colorful compositions. It's unapologetically confident and bold while serving a healthy dose of vulnerability. The undeniable vocal growth helps further define the unique path Ulises has managed to create for himself while the impeccable production and catchy lyrics of these tunes make this a promising record that will manage to catapult this androgynous being into the long deserved platform of success. Expected release of album is Summer of 2015.

2014- what an amazing, unforgettable year this one has turned out to be. As I lay here under satin sheets in the comfort of my bed listening to Beethoven's music as I reflect on what will in a matter of days become another year I've been blessed to live, I can only express complete gratitude for it all. Releasing two albums: my 6th English one appropriately titled "6" and my first ever Spanish album titled "Reino Mexicano" in which I was able to explore orchestrations I grew up listening to as a child, made this year one of musical growth. The fact that I 

T'was the night before Christmas when I heard an unsettling noise coming from my living room. I cautiously crept out of the comfort my king size bed, grabbed my Texas sized shot gun out of my 18th century, hand crafted wooden armoire, and tip toed down the long, chilly corridor of my house. As I approached the living room, the sound grew louder and louder when all of a sudden, a thunderous thump echoed within the walls of my residence. A quiet shriek escaped my lips. I was armed and ready to shoot, but then, confusion clouded my mind… Could it be possible? Was it him? It was him!!! It was Santa. My eyes must have been deceiving me, or at least I thought so, but, they weren't. What was he doing… here in my house? Why was he here?? The answer to my questions were to be revealed. My gun was not gonna come down anytime soon, and I was ready to shoot this motherfucker. I was too startled and alarmed to bring my guard down.

After an amazing week and a half in a country housing ancient temples, tombs, and statues that pre dated to thousands of years of existence, I can't be persuaded to believe that Egypt is anything less than a spectacularly mind-blowing country. With every inch trekked across cities such as Cairo, Aswan, Luxor, and Horghada, I fell deeper and deeper in love with the rich history this beautiful country offered. The trip began with a visit to the Giza pyramids who stood in all it's pride and power firmly after thousands of years of creation. Breath taking seems like an understatement. What made this experience even more unforgettable was trekking across the desert on camels as the pyramids stood behind us in all their grandeur. The shots captured tell a story all on their own and are nothing short of epic! The next few days consisted of a cruise up the Nile River from Aswan

With just a matter of days before the end of an unforgettable year, reminiscing about 2013 almost becomes mandatory. A trip to Europe and South America- two continents I LONG wished to visit- finally manifested. The most important thing I acquired from these trips were the creativity and wealth of insightful knowledge these countries possessed. Those experiences lived have forever changed my life. In effect inspiration whiffled up a desire to create something that reflects upon that in a new body of work I'm currently in the process of creating for 2014. A message from the editorial director Bill Werde of Billboard in which he compliments my singing voice and advises me on my songwriting is a great way to round off the year. Any professional critique I could receive is always welcome, especially from prestigiously insightful and respected individuals like him. This journey as a creative continues to be an adventurous ride, and I assure you, the best of ULISES is still to come. I admit, I am a diamond in the rough, but then again, every major artist was once an unknown. If the natural skills are honed, cultivated, and further developed, then success is unavoidable. It's all a learning process that through determination, hard work, and drive can be achieved. I'm thankful for the independent release of my fifth album this summer- "The Discovery of the Sesliu Galaxy;" another stepping stone along my journey. What can you expect from ULISES in 2014? New album & new artistic visuals… I'm determined to make my 6th album the most creative one yet. If you've been around since the beginning, awareness to my craft's continual improvement and evolution through time should come as no surprise. Never stop believing in yourself and what you embody; have faith and work hard towards your dreams. That's my "secret." 2014- not sure what's in store, but I'm ready to give you all of me. I'm determined to work harder than ever to get to where I need to be. To all the people I've met along the way, I'm thankful for your friendship and your time. Know that the exchange of energy we've had has no price. I love you all! Aim for success and nothing less! God bless! 


Today marks the 10,000th day since I made my way back to Earth on that 26th of June in 1986, and I must say, it's been quite a journey. I've had the privilege of meeting many amazing individuals who have contributed to my growth as a human being throughout my life and which I sincerely hope I've been able to equally reciprocate. For the last few months, I've been on a quest to creatively refuel so that I can continue producing art that not only captivates the human eye but speaks to the soul. After releasing my latest project in which I poured my entire heart out, "Discovery of the Sesliu Galaxy," I felt a need to tread unexplored grounds in hopes of drawing new inspirations, and although I'm not 100% recharged, doubt not for one second that I do continue to work towards fulfilling my purpose on Earth. There are many new surprises I'm working on which I hope to have completed by early next year and in just a matter of days, I'll begin an adventure which I hope you are prepared to undertake with me. That being said, I do want to take the time to thank you for your continuous love and support. Sending you blessings and positive vibes! Remember: if you don't build your dream, someone else will hire you to build theirs.

In just a few days, I will embark on what will be the biggest, most adventurous trip I’ve ever taken in my life; for a little over a month, I will be traveling throughout the European continent and will be digesting a “buffet of countries.” The countdown has begun.

Where to?

I’ve never really traveled outside the North American continent so this will be a new, unparalleled experience. I will finally be making a lifelong dream of mine come true! I’ve always wanted to go to Europe, and see the beauty the continent beholds. Am I nervous? Of course! But I am also, VERY, excited!! The mystery and unknown can be quite intriguing.

What am I looking forward to?

I want an experience; I want to embrace the culture, languages, and people. 

The release of the "Discovery of the Sesliu Galaxy" marks the end of a two year chapter in which I've experienced so much not only as an artist, but as a human being. It's immortalizing a period in my life where I've grown exponentially and been able to appreciate life's beauty even more. It's going abroad to wonder at the heights of the mountains, the huge waves of the sea, the long courses of the rivers, the vast compass of the ocean, the circular motions of the stars, and being able to see and appreciate the magic in each. It's being independent and strong enough to pull through challenges that unexpectedly arrive. It's working hard, through sweat and tears to make an idea come to life. It's falling down and getting back up. It's knowing that love is all around you and that this planet is just a neuron in the universe's dynamic brain. It's magic. It's loving who you are and what the universe offers. It's acknowledging being born not for the development of society alone, but for the development of one's self. It's having courage. It's choosing to be love when hate corners you down; it's surrendering to the beauty of this dance called life. In short, it's the discovery of the galaxy within one's self; the unlocking of the secrets that lie within. With just a few more days till its release, I can't help but to look back at everything experienced within the past two years and be thankful for it all. And even if only one person were to listen to this album, I'd still do it all over again for there's no greater feeling than successfully bringing to life an idea that once existed as a vague thought deep within the trenches of one's mind. I can confidently say that I'm now ready to embark on the next chapter of my life; blank pages are waiting to be filled with new experiences. I welcome thee. I will persist until I succeed; success and nothin less.


Intro- Perfectly sets up the stage for the album

*Home- A pulsating beat with lush strings and a captivating set of drums. Vivid lyricism, an infectious melodic beat, and an intimate vocal performance make it a homerun.

*2gether 4ever- If Max Martin and David Guetta orchestrated a musical baby together, this would be it. An infectious chorus over a captivating beat- it zings with exhilaration, happiness, and youth. I ask myself, could this be one of the biggest hits in 2013? It lacks no element to disprove otherwise. With the right marketing, its potential of being a huge smash would be inevitable.


Native Americans have often held intersex, androgynous people, feminine males and masculine females in high respect. The most common term to define such persons today is to refer to them as "two-spirit" people, but in the past feminine males were sometimes referred to as "berdache" by early French explorers in North America, who adapted a Persian word "bardaj", meaning an intimate male friend. Because these androgynous males were commonly married to a masculine man, or had sex with men, and the masculine females had feminine women as wives, the term berdache had a clear homosexual connotation. Both the Spanish settlers in Latin America and the English colonists in North America condemned them as "sodomites".

Rather than emphasising the homosexuality of these persons, however, many Native Americans focused on their spiritual gifts. American Indian traditionalists, even today, tend to see a person's basic character as a reflection of their spirit. Since everything that exists is thought to come from the spirit world, androgynous or transgender persons are seen as doubly blessed, having both the spirit of a man and the spirit of a woman. Thus, they are honoured for having two spirits, and are seen as more spiritually gifted than the typical masculine male or feminine female.

Confidence is something you develop through time; it comes through acceptance of self with virtues, weaknesses, flaws and all. It's something that comes across and is transmitted through your body language and the way you carry yourself as an individual. It's inviting and attractive. It's being at peace with one's self and truly embracing the totality that you are. It's loving yourself entirely inside and out. Confidence doesn't mean you're better than anyone else, but rather that you recognize that you're capable of achieving whatever it is you set your mind on by believing in yourself completely. It's empowering. It's strength. It's not accomplished by belittling who you are but instead by being a cheerleader to your success. It's being humble and not stepping on others to make you feel superior. It's helping others rise with you, a necessary ingredient just like yeast on bread. With it, the sky is the limit. With the right attitude, anything is possible. It's being responsible for the energy you provide in this allotted space in time. It's a strong frame of mind, a key to being happy. It's knowing who you are and what you stand for; knowing the principles and morals that you embrace. It's essential. It doesn't come right away but rather comes through trials and tribulations one experiences and learns from these waves we ride on this oceanic grid of life. It's knowing who you are and accepting that you're not perfect and that those imperfections are what makes you beautiful. That is confidence.
