In 2014 I toured Europe for 3 months on an independent art study. I visited 6 countries and received extensive instruction on the fundamentals of street art and graffiti culture. That learning experience inspired me to bring the culture back to the states and empower students through their own creativity. Currently I work with schools, after school programs, and community organizations located in the Bay Area.
