Living in the Caribbean at a young age amongst the beauty of the people, language, and culture, I thought I would remain there the rest of my life. However, after I started working at a Spanish tapas bar, I began meeting people from Europe and the Americas whose stories ignited a passionate curiosity in me. Their stories set me afoot on a multi-year journey around-the-world, working any job that I could find along the way. Years later, I arrived in San Francisco from the Middle East for what I thought would be a layover. I fell in love with the city developing my social practice over the last 15 years. I first collaborated on an artistic, entrepreneurial self-empowerment project with the homeless in San Francisco. Recently I have teamed up with Aetatribes.org to bring clean water projects to the indigenous Aeta Tribes of the Philippines. I am fortunate to have shown my artworks at the de Young Museum, the Museum of Mexico City, and the Arlington Contemporary Art Center, in addition to having my artwork and projects published in The Outlaw Bible of American Art.
