This site, especiallyÂ this page, will be forever evolving. As those around me and myself grow and evolve through life’s experiences you can expect to seeÂ an impact here, as well as, in my art, music and writing. I created American HeathenÂ as a reflection of our communal consciousness, a manifesto of sorts for those likeÂ myself. We “Millennials,” as they call us (anyone born after 1984), live at a time unlike any decadeÂ that came before us. We’ve elected a glorified internet troll as the president. The internet and social media have simultaneously impacted us in the most beneficial and harmful ways possible. So, in many ways I’m using my life as a social experiment; a testament of what works and what might notÂ work in order to help my peers move faster and more efficiently through this new age. Society has helped create a group of oxymorons. As a whole we are a collective of cynical dreamers, young visionaries with a long list of desires and no patience for seeing it through. Our own temperament tends to be self destructive in nature resulting in many of us being our own worst enemy.Â The older generations complain and take no responsibility forÂ creating us.Â Now that we’veÂ reached adulthood, our predecessors berateÂ us forÂ the shortcomingsÂ they irresponsibly instilledÂ within us. They told us allÂ we were special, rewarded everyone equallyÂ in fear of alienating a few andÂ hid life’s harsh realityÂ from us during an era of overt and heavy-handedÂ political correctness. The result up to this point has been a mix of triumph and tragedy. Desire and despair. Ambition and hopelessness. My hope is that we can all work together to overcome the madness. On the upside we have the advantage of being alive during an era of globalization and smart technology. If we continue to dream big and learn from our collective mistakes, in addition toÂ fusingÂ the more progressiveÂ ideas of past generations with the advances of the new millennia, I have no doubt we’ll be able to make the greatest social and technological impact in modern history.
