Baseball and basketball were the sports that got me through my childhood and the awkward years of high school. When I got to community college I felt lost and ended up getting kicked out for bad grades. I didn't even know it was possible to be kicked out of COMMUNITY college. Who gets kicked out of COMMUNITY college? Boy was that a wakeup call, probably one of the biggest moments in my life. It made me go back and revisit the things that I loved and had a real passion for:

- like growing up playing sports and being able to wear the coolest performance shoes.

- getting my first iPod in high school which lead me down a path filled with everything Apple.

- being the kid in school that everyone knew could draw.

These were things I loved but were overlooked due to my life of sports. So when the time came to find a new path for my future it turned out to be something to do with design. My love for Apple products lead me to industrial design. It was crazy to think that there were people out there designing those pro model shoes for the athletes I admire. I had found my path and the way to get there was through Art Center. I have spent the last 2 years at DC shoes designing products for some of the best athletes in the world and I feel at home. I know I am doing what I love and what I am truly meant to be doing. Who knew getting kicked out of Community college would lead to a life of design.

Hope you enjoy my work,
