Greetings! I'm thrilled to be alive everyday and completely in LOVE with the sun, but that's probably not enough information to complete an effective bio...
I was born in Houston TX, three minutes before August 29th. I grew up in a small suburbanesque area, right next to Hobby Airport. My family moved to San Antonio TX in 99.
I've been drawing and painting since it was physically possible me to do those things. Visual art continues to be a dominant passion in my life, though, I have delved into spoken word and performance poetry in recent years.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I traveled to Providence RI to study art at the Rhode Island School of Design my junior year in high school. Being exposed to a larger variety of cultures, viewpoints, and creative processes helped mold me into the tolerant and peaceful artist I am today.
