I am a freelance graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, and multidisciplinary artist based in Houston, Texas. I specialize in developing and producing creative ideas through logo design, brand identity, album art + layout design, t-shirt + apparel design, poster design, wall graphics, silkscreen printing, and mixed media art. Beyond design, I also take on the responsibilities of Creative and Art Director as well.

For me, art was something I had been creating since elementary school. I began experimenting with design in junior high as my interest in team logos and mascots developed. I would draw all of my favorite team icons. I also collected hip hop magazines like VIBE, The Source, XXL, Right On, and Murder Dog, and would later cut the images out to make my own graphic collages and posters.
By the time I reached high school, I was redesigning album covers to my own liking and “photoshopping” myself onto magazines covers. My early music collection was often selected based off of how dope I thought the artwork was. This is ultimately how I trained my eye at a young age to recognize the impact of great typography, layout, colors comibinations, and composition.

In 2010, I quit my job to focus on music full-time, which allowed me to get more involved with the art direction of my brand. Soon I started getting phone calls left and right to design graphics. At this point I was forced to take my craft more seriously, so I returned to college and earned a degree in Graphic Design. It’s been a graphic rollercoaster ever since and the journey continues.
