Raised by foreign service workers in the 1990s, I am a son of many places and of nowhere in particular. ︎︎ Along the way I have become an adaptive, open-minded, and empathetic person. I am always learning new skills, languages, cooking techniques, you name it. My nickname growing up was “spiderman.” I vibe with electronic and afrobeat music.

    After earning my MFA in Studio Painting ︎ in 2011, I planted my roots in Chicago. I am inspired by fellow artists and teachers, I steep myself in history, striving to better contribute to my city and its people through art and design.

    I am currently finishing up rigorous coursework in Design Lab’s UX Academy, and working on a graphic novel about land use in Washington State, with the American Planning Association.︎
