I’m a Surinamese-American born and raised in the Bronx. Growing up I was surrounded by street and influential art. I developed an interest in art which encouraged me to enroll in the High School of Art and Design. There I learned different artistic mediums. My passion for the Arts led me to obtain an MFA studying Art Direction from Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I work as an Art Director and on the side, a Photographer. My design aesthetic is clean and simple. I work to portray “SOUL,” an inner emotion expressed through fine art and design. My photos capture light and shadow by revealing the message between them.
