Bio

I was born in Florida, but lived most of my life in Richmond, Virginia.

After graduating from the Experience Design track at the VCU Brandcenter in May, 2015, I sold 90% of my belongings, converted a minivan into an RV and went on a 9 day cross-country road trip that ended in the Bay Area, where I currently reside.

I'm a creator and fixer by nature. I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Almost 100% of everything I do is self-taught.

If I'm not working on a design or DIY project, you can most likely find me in the woods somewhere camping with my friends. I'm an avid outdoors enthusiast and adventurer, and find my inspiration in the middle of nowhere.
