First 20 years of my life was spent playing Basketball religiously and listening to Hip Hop. I always liked drawing and was fascinated with Graffiti tags and stickers seen around Ottawa. I started working at a store that sold spray paint and was immediately hooked, not only in the Graffiti products—but the entire lifestyle that came with it.
Skateboarding culture landed very close to me, in terms of vibe and lifestyle. That and Street Art have been a huge part of my life, by inspiring me and forming community. Seeing Tags and meeting Artists, gave me the motivation to continue painting. I just want to paint walls, paint for fun, catch tags, meet Artists alike and form a collective within Ottawa.
Ottawa produces a lot of very talented Artists and I'm blessed to be part of it. My wife and I have a daughter, who also loves to paint and inspire—she is the future.
