Born during a thunderstorm on the small but boisterous island of Jamaica in August of 1988, I was protected and loved by a humble father named Dennis and a vibrant mother named Marie. They raised me as their only son. I moved to the land of prosperity and promise at the age of seven. As my parents went off to work, my imagination sparked and time seemed almost nonexistent. I would get lost creating games, drawings, characters, friends and stories that had no end. Today, I'm using art to relive my childhood and build a family legacy. My art focuses on the Afro-Caribbean, African American Experience and Pop Culture.
