“I love what I do and the impact I have on so many people’s lives. Everyday I strive to be better than who I was the day before and constantly seek new inspirations every step I take on the city pavement. Whether it be in a gallery I walk past, the site of a beautiful art piece in the center of an avenue, or even a local busker trying to get noticed, inspiration runs deep in this amazing city.”
