I was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. I enjoyed making art at an early age and being the youngest in my family it occupied a great deal of my time and helped gain attention from everyone. In middle school I was fortunate enough to take an art class and I did rather good. Lucky me they had just opened a magnet program for the arts called Douglas Anderson School of the Arts. I was the last student auditioned on the last day, and I was selected. This was an amazing experience that I would have never had otherwise. I was exposed to the world of Fine Arts and it was amazing. This propelled me to a presidential scholarship at Ringling School of the Arts where and I continued to develop. I was not sure how art provided a financial future and changed majors to illustration. However, at that time I really enjoyed creating public art, so I switched back to Fine Arts. I landed my first job as a designer and sculptor with Feld Entertainment, the creators of Ringling Circus and Disney on Ice. This filled my need to create things for the public view and I was set to succeed in the Arts & Entertainment Industry. Ironically, design and illustration were always part of this endeavor to share with others your intensions before investing so much time and money towards a set goal. Eventually the digital age had matured, and I began using computer programs more often to promote work. I was asked to fill sales and management rolls that in 2011 led me to an ownership role. After years of being a small business owner I am looking to rejoin a team of professionals and be a part of a company dynamic for the foreseeable future.
