it’s been too long since we’ve featured an artist spotlight on our page, but you all should know by now that we won’t force out content and always work hard to make it worth the wait. it’s been a long solid year of scouting and connecting with artists to find the right gems we feel align. with that being said, we are totally stoked to introduce to you someone who has been a source of inspiration and creativity for our brand. he is one whose experience, kind heart, and adaptability shine bright through his essence and work.
tell us about your journey
who are you?
where are you from?
grew up in michigan. moved around the state a lot during high school, but spent time living in cities: ann harbor,
what’s your passion?
what inspires you?
what are you most excited for?
what legacy do you want to leave?
a legacy of love and passion in the world, i think a lot of people in this day and age follow this rule book of whats cool or what’s not, you have social media and TV brain washing you. i really want people to believe in themselves more and the art they create, i spent so many years hiding away not fully believing in myself which i feel like is an art form in itself. i think it’s so important as an artist or a human to really tap into that realm and dig for what fuels YOU as a human and to re-flip and express – that is so important. i want to teach technology and little things i’ve figured out over the years to hopefully break down for the next generations.
what is most important to you?
personal growth and health are the most important things to me. getting hurt was such a eye opening experience with just how fragile life really is and i feel so many people take for granted. just doing little things like walking to the store, or carrying groceries. after my back gave out it changed my perspective of the world ten folds. we are all so fragile.
