Tell me a story that shaped your life…


- I was raised in a predominantly poor neighborhood in North St. Louis, MO, by my grandmother. She was a retired educator, so money was tight and the importance of education was high. She lovingly encouraged me to achieve my dreams.

I received my BFA in Graphic Design after she passed away, but am so grateful she got to see me thriving in college along the way. I owe her everything.

Tell me a story of hope…


- The year has brought much adversity as it has to many people. We have been spending most of our time at home since before the pandemic. In October of last year, one of our identical twin girls was diagnosed with Leukemia.

By the time COVID-19 emerged we were old pros at making the most of home life. My wife left her acupuncture practice to keep up with our daughter’s intense treatment schedule taking us down to one income, our basement flooded twice, we stopped being able to have friends help at the house with the kids because of COVID-19, we discovered springs in our front yard that were keeping it saturated.

Through all this we have remained hopeful, happy and humble. Work has been steady for me, we had a French drain put in the front yard, we have restored the basement back even better and completely mitigated the cause of flooding, and we’ve made being at home the best possible experience it can be for our family. We should open a lemonade stand, because we've gotten quite good at making lemonade out of lemons.

What would you want the world to know about you…


- That I cared deeply, loved without fear, and that my heart never stopped growing.

What did / do you miss most during covid 19…


- Hugs and hangs.

What brings you the most joy / smile the most...


- The laughter of any one of my 4 kids.

What is your most prized possession…


- My integrity is my most prized possession. It leads me through life without the need for regrets.

Traveling is my life, and has also saved my life. It shows the beauty of other cultures. tell me a story of your favorite travel moment…


- Traveling to and through all of Rwanda a few years ago let me see the power of forgiveness and perseverance in action.

Tell me a story of struggle…


- Short story…2020.

What is your greatest accomplishment…


- Building community. The importance of community has never echoed more loudly than it has this year.

I’m thankful for being able to foster safe places for people to stay connected.

What do you do for work… and why…


- I’m a graphic designer, branding specialist, photographer, and content creator. These things all feed me in different ways and allow me to help others tell their stories.

If you had the ear of everyone in the world, what would you say to them...


- I’m from the future and I have seen that it is not too late to save the world and establish widespread peace throughout, but the work needs to start right now and the outcome will be true paradise.
