1. When did you first start creating? My first serious body of work was created in the fourth grade. I made a suite of drawings inspired by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Haha.
2. What is your process? I've always been curious, which is probably why I'm an artist, but I developed my current process during my time in the General Fine Arts program at MICA. As I tackle different topics in my art I generate lists of ways the problem could be solved, and go from there. The core of my current practice is the list generation and thinking about the issue; the materials I use are a result of the process.
3. When did you first come to the Gateway Arts District? I have known about the Gateway Art District since 2005. I exhibited at the Artist Lofts near the circle in 2006. I lived Hyattsville from 2008-2011. I am currently the Program Director at Art Works Now located in the Gateway Arts District.

4. What stop are you on the 2015 Open Studio Tour? I am exhibiting at The Art Works Pop up Gallery located at 4800 Rhode Island Avenue and at the Prince Georges African American Museum and Cultural Center.
5. Where else can people see your work? Not the internet! But if people are interested here's my email, firstname.lastname@example.org.

"I think of the word 'art' similarly to the word 'natural', often used yet the definition will go on indefinitely."
