I am a father, an artist, and a business owner. Born in Pittsburgh PA, I grew up with two parents who pushed me to excel in the classroom while simultaneously encouraging me to be creative and artistic. In high school, I was introduced to and fell in love with graphic art and creating digitally.
While studying business in undergrad at Saint Vincent I decided to start my own business selling t-shirts. I used what I knew about web development from class to create my own website where I sold original artwork on t-shirts to customers nationally. In 2016 I graduated from Point Park with a Masters Degree and welcomed my first born child into the world.
After experiencing discrimination in the workforce I decided to go back into business for myself. I turned my passion for art, understanding of business, and experience with web development into a service and 2020 I launched Ocular Arcade, a digital production company that specializes in web development, printmaking, and graphic design. I continue to practice as a professional artist and enjoy creating digital collage art. My goal as an artist is to deconstruct constructs and antagonize critical thought among my audience.
