New York City, United States

Artist. Illustrator. Designer. Creative Director.

Driven by fine art and skateboarding early on and cutting my teeth on the industry as a designer and art director for 5 years, I spent the last half of a decade (before just recently moving to Portland) spinning my craft globally on my own from my headquarters in Brooklyn, New York

God has blessed me with the opportunity to work on some amazing projects and with some of the most genuine and talented people in the industry. From corporate giants (Absolut Vodka / Bloomingdale's / Coca-Cola), to media and publications (Entertainment Weekly / MTV), to bands/musicians (Nightmare of You / Nas), i've covered the spectrum - developing an eclectic client list that includes both indie and corporate alike.

In July ¬†’09, I took over as Creative Director of RYZ, a new footwear brand founded by the former President of Adidas, Rob Langstaff. After personally rebranding and rebuilding – right away, David Gensler and I began curating a large collaboration that would reach a worldwide scale – hitting all four corners of the globe with some of our collective’s top artists and designers – making it the largest art x footwear collaboration to date. Along with the footwear collection – there is a handful of limited edition t-shirts from some of the participating members.

This collection features KDU members: Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic (US), Amenth (Indonesia), Bob Partington (Canada), Chuck Anderson (U.S.), Daren Newman (U.K.), Edgar Gonzalez (Guatemala), Jan Hakon Robson (Norway), Josh Vanover (US), Justin Maller (Australia), KXX (Poland), Magomed Dovjenko (Germany), Matt W. Moore (US), Max Spencer (UK), Nasa (Argentina), Nigel Evan Dennis (US), P.J. Richardson (US), Ron Wimberly (US), Sandra Chi (Korea), Shadow Chen (China), Si Scott (UK), James Sanderson and Si Billam of Unit (UK), and photography by Eric Vogel.

To see the collection in its entirety, fully developed artist profiles, descriptions of each piece, and an interview I conducted with David, visit KDU x RYZ: The World Paradigm Collection.

Huge thanks to all who were a part of this amazing project. This is only the beginning….
