What’s “my part”?

I am one of thousands who woke up November 8th and chose to go help complete strangers, many of whom were having the worst day of their life. Not a hero, just a regular guy, doing his job. 

Our team arrived in Paradise, CA on November 9th 12:06pm. The next 7 days and 7 nights, we lived out of our ambulance. Strong smells of smoke, cold gas station dinners, a shower or two, and countless faces I’ll never forget.

While shooting Trust Fall, I was able to reconnect with many survivors and share moments that will stay with me forever. What they chose to share was incredibly powerful:

“When I close my eyes at night I can’t get the cries for help and screaming out of my head”
“We appreciate all the help, but we do not simply need money. That will not bring our homes back, we need help and to BE HEARD”

Yes, the fire is out and Paradise is being rebuilt — when the headlines subside and popular attention shifts elsewhere is exactly when these families need our help the most.

With the help of Caye and his team, we are supporting a range of community resources in Butte County with an emphasis on mental health, specifically designed to help those coping from natural disasters or traumatic events.

What’s “my part”?

I’ve been able to make a difference for my country, representing the USA National Team, winning multiple international medals. And right now, I’m a student at UCLA with a full athletic scholarship, but I still dream of more:

I want to be a human rights activist, an artist, and an entertainer.

With the help of Caye and his team, we are supporting NEGU—a charitable organization that helps kids fighting cancer. NEGU stands for Never Ever Give Up—I’ve never given up on my dreams and I want these kids to know that they never should either.


 
 
 

ABOUT

NEGU helps kids fighting cancer by connecting with families, bringing awareness to their stories, offering a network of helpful resources, and sending the families continual doses of encouragement throughout their journeys. Helping every kid fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up!

WHAT’S “MY PART”?

I am the father of a beautiful 4-year-old baby girl named, Serenity , who has given me infinite inspiration to share my talents more widely as an entertainer, acrobatic performer, musical artist, and a community mentor for children.

To that end, I want to help inspire the youth to focus on positive aspects of life and stay off the streets. I’m hopping to open a Community School For Dancing to teach the youth how dancing can change lives and build a new focus .


 
 
 

ABOUT

DMF Youth empowers underserved youth in New York City through dance, fitness, and life skill development.

DMF Youth helps level the playing field for underserved youth by creating a safe, nurturing after-school and summer camp environment that focuses on educating the whole child—physical, mental, emotional. Our programs are led by highly trained teaching artists that not only provide quality arts education, but also the nurturing, love, and mentorship many kids need to flourish both in and outside of the classroom.

We use dance as a way of fostering collaboration, cooperation, and communication with at-risk youth, some of which would previously resort to violence or isolation. As our kids learn and become proficient in new skills, their self-esteem soars and they realize they are capable of anything they put their mind to.
