What is your bio / story?
I started drawing and painting at 12 years old. I’ve had a deep passion for art, and have been drawing and painting ever since. I began taking my art more seriously in college while studying Human Development at Indiana University. Since then, I have been featured in art shows in multiple cities in Indiana. I enjoy viewing and discussing art with other artists in all mediums, whether it be physical, digital, or sculpting.
I especially hope to encourage young African American men to take more interest in the arts. I believe it's both crucial to art, and to the African American community.
What is your “superpower?
I’d say I have a keen eye for talent and the ability to understand almost any topic discussed, giving me the ability to engage in conversation with people from all walks of life.

Why do you feel diversity & inclusion is important to the future of web3 and the blockchain?
Diversity and inclusion in Web3 and the blockchain is important because a lot of these tech programs and systems require a creative mind behind them to function, and to stay up to date to change.

The future and past is what often inspires me to be my best self. My past self is constantly pushing me to be better than I have been. The future, and it’s endless possibilities, pushes me to strive for 'never-before-seen' heights.

I am currently working on a 1/1 NFT collection that features both digital and physical art, that will be released on the Ethereum blockchain. I am also pushing to integrate Web3 into a few art museums and councils in my hometown of Evansville, Indiana.
