Turning Crisis into Creativity
(FLINT, Mich.) — NEWS: Jonathan McKay, better known by his social influencer tag RoarJMcKay is a psychedelic multimedia content creator hailing from Flint, MI. Harnessing the influence of psychedelia, McKay has begun to apply concepts of geometric structure and interconnectedness visually in abstract ways. After surviving the disastrous “Flint Water Crisis” and fighting a brave battle with Cancer in his saliva glands, Jonathon had a new vision for life. That new vision was “Keeping Tabs.”
Established in 2017, the sole purpose of Keeping Tabs (KT) has been to bridge the gaps in communication relating to factors of socioeconomic, mental, and physical diversities.
Jonathan has an optimistic personality. Even after surviving such tough battles and handling such trauma, he still looks for the bright side of life. Keeping Tabs (KT) is one of the examples of how important it is for Jonathan to help society in the most innovative of ways.
The brand name Keeping Tabs project is a mobile application doctors use to aid inpatient treatment plans in the prescription process. Its primary focus was the opioid crisis hovering around the U.S. How people are battling with such crises and what guilt they face after recovering from several addictions.

The app includes risk assessment analysis, deviance tests, DSM-5 inventories, and biometrics in a user-friendly format for smooth navigation. KT aims to be a means to combat the growing overprescription epidemic and the opioid crisis. This crisis affects citizens of the United States nationwide. However, McKay has partnered with Midwest community organizations to create hope and spread awareness of proper treatment plans in the pharmaceutical industries.
