The streets of Chicago are one of the toughest places to grow up. There were not a lot of opportunities for an aspiring graphic/visual artist. Attending The Ohio State University art program was one of the first steps I took upon myself, then moving to the Bay Area to obtain my Master's Degree has truly afforded me the opportunities to excel professionally. Taking every opportunity to become a great artist has always been a goal and I won't stop until this goal and more are achieved. No time for defeat!
