His artwork is collaborative in mediums, from spray painting to acting on stage, mixing music to dancing. He is most well known for his murals. His pieces of work are vibrant and lively.

Oh, I can hardly contain my excitement!! December was a busy month for LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel. Before the end of the year we wanted to complete the promotional video for the line. We are truly thankful for Ranadeb Choudhury, Chief Executive Officer of 24hh.com and 8tivlabs, and the entire 8tivlabs team for helping us with the LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel promotional video. Stay tuned for the official promotional film that we plan to share to the public, for the first time, within the next few days. Trust me, you do not want to miss this! In the meantime, check out a few of the ‘behind the scenes’ shots.
Why LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel? What is the inspiration behind the apparel line? What is the back-story of LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel? How did an educator get into apparel? As we come close to the final months of our first collection, I would like to share the story behind LEARNtheBrand Impact Apparel. This is the story of a social impact apparel line committed to transforming education, one shirt at a time.
When I was a child, my mom was not a supporter of consumerism or materialism. She did not believe in buying name brands or staying up to date with the latest fad. For example, to her ‘sneakers’ (as she called gym/tennis shoes, she’s from New Jersey) were all the same whether they had a Nike logo on them or not. She was a major proponent of my sister and I making crafts for toys and coming up with creative games to keep us occupied. On Christmas mornings, before we opened any of the gifts under the tree, as a way for us to remember the reason for the season, we had to open the gift that ‘Jesus’ gave us first. That gift was simply a scripture that was selected for my sister and I to focus on for the upcoming year attached to a red rose.

Have you ever watched a good television program, and after the credits have rolled up your television screen, there are a few clips that show the ‘bloopers’ or ‘behind the scenes’ recordings? On the occasions when this has happened to me, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed a brief glimpse of what was not intended to be viewed by the public equally as much as the final edited program. Perhaps, it is the fact that the ‘bloopers’ or the ‘behind the scenes’ shots show the program in its organic state. Or, maybe, the unedited footage provides an example of how mistakes were necessary to create such an enjoyable viewing experience.
