His Inspiration:

My inspiration stems from a deep gratitude of having an innate ability to establish an environment of trust where young people feel open to discuss their inner thoughts. I love showing teens and young adults that, once their most fearful thoughts are out in the open, there is a path to living a meaningful life.
