I have been an artist and curator for over 25 years. And a DJ coming up on two decades.   This section is divided into 2 parts that makes the whole of ARTISLIFE SF.


Artist & Curator

I have been involved in the Bay Area arts, music, and nonprofit scenes since 2000. I was born in Virginia and started pursuing my artistic visions at the VCU School of the Arts. I engulfed myself in the arts and music scenes in the city of Richmond VA. At first, I started just wanting to be a painter but after my first year I open myself to the idea of having no boundaries as an artist. I learned how to DJ, started writing poetry, did some acting and starred in an underground movie! Curated shows of all kinds of artistic expressions professionally for my school and my own artist group called Round House. I soaked up as much as I could in the arts in my 5 years in Richmond VA.


After graduating, I moved to San Francisco to start my career as a professional artist. This is where I started to fine tune my managing, producing, and collaboration skills. A thrive for community art collaborations has been a theme of mine throughout my career.

From painting, drawing, filmmaking, DJing, poetry and dance -- and realized that I would always be open to all forms of art and opportunities for unique outcomes. I have helped start up two arts magazines and curated all their events from fundraisers, premieres, to community art shows. I was a founder of a variety performance night and slowly started DJing all over California. I currently show my various forms of art all over the city and continue to collaborate with organizations and artists with a progressive mindsets. Always try to live out to what I preach. "Art Is Life." or say it fast and it is β€œArt-ist Life.”(Go to ARTIST CV page and view my art projects over the last 18 years.)
