My passion lies in the creation of art pieces that are innovative, aesthetically pleasing, and functional. I am a recent graduate at Hampton University and currently a grad student at University of Baltimore. During my tenure, I have worked on a variety of projects and created numerous items for both classes and companies. I pride myself in being very flexible and able to complete any task that is assigned.
