Nate McQueen Uchida was a loving and loyal husband and father. He was strong and bold, confident, fearless and funny, He brought out the best in others and had a gift for making others feel special. He was a photojournalist by trade and artist by heart. He was a son, brother & friend. Nate had a fatal disease that took over his mind. It destroyed his sense of security and his ability to enjoy life. Daily living became Nate's personal hell. This disease progressed to the point that he felt physically sick all of the time. He woke feeling nauseous with anxiety until he could no longer bear it.
Nate's quest to heal mental disease continues through YogiPunk.
