I received my BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and continued education in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Cleveland Institute of Art. I have been trained in Illustration, Graphic Arts, Film/Video production and Art Education. Since graduating I have been a successful graphic designer for Hybrid Apparel and Fortune Fashions both based in Los Angeles. My paintings have been exhibited in Bo Bridges and Mid-City Arts galleries also located in southern California. My canvas became bigger when I began painting murals, which lead me to New York to work with SpreadartNYC, Five Pointz creative and Groundswell. I was also able to edit a feature length documentary, Afraid of dark, which was showcased in the LIU Film Festival, Pomona college and the Chicago Cultural Center to name a few. Along my travels I have worked with organizations such as Progressive Arts Alliance that went into schools and low-income settings to teach kids/adults art after their programs were cut from the budget. I believe that nothing is impossible with a proper plan of action. No one is lost when someone has left footprints. I encourage others to make their mark and pay it forward!
