About

Born and New Orleans, I attended Epiphany Elementary School, St Augustine (1 year) and then finished high school at Ben Franklin. After which i went to Xavier University. I began my college education in Biology Pre- Med but changed my major a few times before choosing Art with a focus in Graphic Design. I graduated from XU in 2003 and entered graduate school at The Institute of Design in Chicago. With one year left in the program i took a year off to create a series of paintings inspired by the people affected by the tsunami of 2004.  The next year hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans the day that i was returning to complete my last year of study.
