My name is Demond (duh-MON), meaning "of the world". My sister named me after someone she saw on TV. I am a Texas boy living in New York City. I've spent the last 8 years adjusting to the fast pace of NYC which is, in so many ways, like the Emerald City. I've met it with a great deal of anxiety and excitement, and have developed deeper as an artist and as a human being. And as a result of this great leap of faith, I've met incredible people that inspire me everyday. Many people follow strange dreams to find New York City their destination; it's great to be among other people who can't help but follow this blinding light.
