About me

I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and continually created art throughout my childhood. Though, it wasn’t until I was seventeen when I took my first position as a graphic designer and receieved the President’s Volunteer Service Award from Barack Obama by co-founding Eye-See Mission, a non-profit organization which helped to redistribute used eye glasses to underprivileged persons. I moved into Chicago in 2009 where I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Communication & Media Studies with a minor in Art & Design in three and a half years at DePaul University and began to develop my skills in mural making and Public Art alongside my studies.

After commissioning commercial murals and designs for the city, in 2014, I decided to broaden my cultural intelligence by moving abroad. Currently I am living and working inbetween Hamburg and Berlin where I plan to use all my cultural experiences from living abroad in addition to my own personal ethnic roots as a multi-racial individual and found the Kollektiv Individuell Public Art project, which aims to nurture a culture and community for people of multiple racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
