SHOW NOTES

SUMMARY:

Today’s episode features Johnny Reyes, a globally renowned Music Producer, Recording Artist, DJ and Film Composer. 
 
He began to DJ warehouse parties in the San Francisco rave scene at age 14 yet his story took a dark turn as he found himself deep in the hedonistic party scene where he was battling debilitating addictions, depression and even a suicide attempt. He eventually went to rehab, where he learned how to evolve his creativity without the need for his dangerous and addictive vices.
 
In addition to offering Addiction Coaching and Recovery Support, he is also the co-founder of I AM Retreats, a healing retreat company focused on amplifying wellness through sound-science and personalized audio production.
