Overview

This is a personal story of the journey to point B and how defiance became a driving force to stand back up after every knock down. The story is filled with a chaotic path of death, drugs, abuse, foster care, being abandoned by family and having to find places to stay just to finish high school. The story of defiance begins — the defiance to push forward, get back up after every knockdown, to not give up even in the darkest of times. It’s not about who he works with, or who he knows or a list of names from momentary projects, it’s always been about just trying to be better than what was ever expected. This is the story of Hydro74, this is the story he wants to share.

  9. 9. P a g e 9 life is not about feeding off of the past but finding balance to embrace the now & demand more from tomorrow. every breath is an act of defiance to those that doubted and circumstances that wanted you to fail. only you can make a choice to stand back up and fight for what you can be. defiance is the energy that pulses through your veins as you lay beaten, but not willing to give in. that fight pushes you to your feet to stand toe to toe with life and gives rise to courage that not today, failure gets it’s victory, not today will you take, but today i will fight.
