I was born in Oceanside, CA and moved to New Orleans in 1982. My father is a filipino immigrant who was in the Marine Corps, so I moved to Virginia and Chicago before returning to New Orleans in the 90's. I've been curating and exhibiting in art shows around the city for almost two decades, most recently co-curating the Top Mob exhibit at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. I paint large scale murals as well as acrylic and mixed media on canvas, and I am proficient with charcoal figure drawings and illustration. I have owned a commercial screenprinting business in New Orleans since 2007, and more recently started a mural company called New Orleans Paint + Design.
