I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area. I continually created art throughout my childhood, though it wasn’t until I was seventeen when I took my first position as a freelance graphic designer. I moved into Chicago in 2009 where I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Communication with a Minor in Art & Design in three and a half years at DePaul University and then pushed my career further and got my art off the computer and into the world of creating murals and big art.
After years of commissioning commercial murals and designs for the city, in 2014, I decided to broaden my cultural experiences and improve my language skills by moving to Madrid, Spain and then to Hamburg, Germany.
Currently I am living in Berlin where I plan to use all my experiences from living abroad in addition to my own personal roots as a multi-racial individual from the Chicagoland area and found my Multi-Racial & Ethnic Collective Public Art project, which aims to stop gentrification by supporting Public Art as opposed to commercialized art in addition to nurture a culture and community for people of multiple racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
