ABOUT

Multidisciplinary designer / illustrator based in Los Angeles, California. I was born in Philadelphia and I spent most of my days on the playground, just chilling and relaxing. But one day I was shooting some b-ball after school when some kids were making some trouble. I got into a fight and my mom got scared and said we’re moving to Los Angeles. All true. Promise.

I grew up with a lot of Saturday morning cartoons with my giant Leonardo, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toy seated right next to me. I would always be drawing characters from cartoons like Dragon Ball, Spider-Man, Batman, and X-Men.

After graduating with a Bachelor Degree in Graphic Design from California Polytechnic State University, I went to work in an agency designing UI/UX for mobile/web and identity/branding. From there I co-founded Sansquare, a small award-winning design studio. Soon after, I joined Alpinestars revving it up as a print designer. I also started MASA+SU and I AM CRIME as a passion projects that stem my interests and hobbies working on prints, tees, and other dope stuff :)
