About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel whenever I can,

ABOUT ME

I have settle in Grand Rapids, Michigan (for now.) I am in the middle of starting a business called The Collective Artspace. We are fresh and new but MAN is it fun. A completely different rush from travelling, but a rush all the same. I moved from Casablanca, Morocco and Maturin Venezuela last year where I was working as an Art/ Social Studies Teacher at an International School. I am a working artist as well. Along with art I have a love of music. I love culture and exploring new things. I love my bike, and good vegetarian(pescetarian) food.

PHILOSOPHY

"seek truth" "just be"
