The most rewarding aspect of being an artist is that I am allowed to meet extraordinary people and learn from them. I grew up as a five-sport athlete, and that competitive nature drives my motivation. Integrity, perseverance, and curiosity fabricate my life. From them I continuously learn new ways of problem-solving and overcoming challenges. As long as I have my coffee and my art, my world will remain intact. I want to work where I am pushed to become better each day.
