Tertulien grew up with the cult of the Assemblies of God, a free-church Pentecostal movement. With clear rules on how to dress and behave.

“It was almost impossible to merge these two worlds. I left Stamford at the age of 23 and moved to LA to unapologetically pursue my dreams. I had decided to put all my hope and energy into music. Where it will take me is always a surprise, but what counts is the moment. Every second of every minute.”
The whole story and about 80 other portraits will appear in the book “People Like Us“.
