BORN AND RAISED IN OAKLAND CALIFORNIA. MY LOVE FOR DESIGN STARTED AT A VERY YOUNG AGE. GROWING UP IN A VERY POOR FAMILY, I HAD TO USE MY IMAGINATION TO CREATE TOYS USING THE LIMITED JUNK AVAILABLE. THROUGHOUT THE MANY YEARS IN SCHOOL, I WAS ABLE TO EXPRESS MY CREATIVITY THROUGH DESIGN. OUTSIDE OF DESIGN, I ENJOY PLAYING VIDEO GAMES, SHOOTING VIDEOS, TAKING PICTURES, DRAWING, FLYING DRONES, MUAY THAI, AND DISCOVERING NEW FOOD.
