Growing up in South Carolina and showing a strong interest in visual art was not the most common path. Fortunately, I had a very supportive home- and a public school system that actually invested in the arts. So, naturally art school made the most sense upon high school graduation. I attended Winthrop University for a BFA in Visual Communication Design (graphic design) with a secondary interest in fine art (screen printing). Upon graduation I promptly left the South given the small amount of creative work to be had.

In 2004 I moved to Los Angeles and have worked as a print designer, independent curator, author for AMMO Books, RVCA, R77, OBEY Giant and Gagosian Gallery. I am also co-owner of the gallery THIS los angeles, in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

By Way of the South includes artists from all periods in my history as a creative youth, graphic designer, and curator. I find it to be a special thing to continue these relationships for this many years. Growing and working together on new endeavors has been a rewarding experience for all of us.
