He received an award from the city council of New York for his work in the city’s community. Although not his birth name, Figueroa chose to make "Randy Figueroa" his main artistic pseudonym, as he feels more connected to that name. He also goes by "Maverick Disciple" for any music related projects he's attached to.

Writer Statement

This story originally began as a short concept just about the idea of trying to save the human race from being destroyed. As I kept looking back at it, I realized that it could be a greater story that passes judgement on humanity and the repetitive mistakes it's made. It's moments like that that remind me why I love the arts. A small idea can change and evolve in an instant and become something better and hopefully, more thought provoking.
