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 with multicultural youths in Germany to lead integrational, cultural, and political development through art projects. Using my cultural experiences from living abroad alongside my own personal roots as a multiracial individual, I co-founded the All Related art collective, which aims to unite and build a community for people of multiple racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
