Are you originally from Miami? If not, where are you originally from? Orginally From here in south Florida, I grew up in Broward county and moved to Miami when I started college.

How long have you lived in the city? I lived there for 3 years but currently I’m back in Broward, albeit only to sleep, lol.

What are you passionate about & why? I’m Passionate about my art… making it on walls, canvases and anything else I can get my hands on… I am also passionate about giving back through charity and acts of kindness… when i can I take part in charity events, homeless feeding projects, etc. I personally feel that one of the ways we define our humanity is through acts of service.

What do you hope to accomplish through your talents? I hope to add my perspective to the vast amount of artistic talent that is already here… and hope to also aide in the attention that is finally coming to Miami’s art scene…. A lot of artists come here for various reasons through the year… but there is also a ridiculous amount of talent that is already here/ homegrown.

If you had super powers, what would your power be? Super Speed

How would/do you use your super powers to accomplish your goals? Definitely, Most people are surprised when they see how “full my plate always is”..  I’d knock out as much art as I could, I always felt that the day would be perfect if it had 3 extra hours..lol With Super speed it wouldn’t be a problem.

What was your most significant achievement in 2014 (or in life)? Hmmm that’s hard.. a lot has been going on… in the past year especially.. I can say the biggest job I got is with a county project that i will be starting soon… and the most memorable was a job I did last year for Bud-light in Colorado.. They flew me and 6 other artists there for a week and paid us to create a bunch of awesome art for one of their promotions. It made me realize how much I love what i do.

What if anything do you hope to contribute to Miami? A unique point of view within the framework of my art.
