I was born in Los Angeles, I moved to The Bay Area (San Francisco / Oakland) for 15 years, and in 2015, I moved back to L.A.
My creativity has always revolved around art, culture, design, politics and sports. I began my creative career as a percussionist, which morphed into a DJ career that lasted over 20 years. As a self-taught graphic designer, photographer, and web designer, I have worked for corporate entities by way of full time employment and freelance. My experience spans from sports entertainment (NFL Network, Bleacher Report) to municipal agencies (City of Inglewood).
My work currently revolves primarily around social impact initiatives, as the production lead at Idea2Form, a multi-dimensional, full service creative agency, while also freelancing in the spaces of art, community engagement and social justice. A few of my collaborators are LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), CAAM (California African American Museum), Skirball Cultural Center, Serato, Lululemon, LA Commons, The Getty, City of Santa Monica, and many more.
While I have continued to work hard over the years, my work never defines me. I am open to meet via zoom or with fellow creatives for lunch, mentor, have creative exchanges, discuss jazz, hip hop, or talk about a recent museum exhibition or last nights game. I live to help others, with an emphasis on people and organizations of color towards advancement.
