Revision Path interview

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Maurice Cherry of Revision Path. We had a great conversation and Maurice did a good job focusing on design and giving me space to talk about the things I really care about. I enjoyed the playback and hope you do as well. There's about 3:20 minutes of ads up front so if you wanna just get to it just fast forward.

Thank you for your continued love and support.

Hello all this email is to inform you I have two new interviews that were published today. One with These Days News out of Chicago and the other with New City. Make sure you check both of them out. I felt like my answers were really raw and honest. I wasn't crazy with how I felt I came off after reading thru them but it's super honest and I hope you get something from them. Also Happy Lovers Day

Speaking Engagement: Black in Design at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design

Since this event my world has gone into hyper drive it has been such a blessing to my life and my spirit. I was invited to speak at the second Black In Design conference and the prestigious and intimidating Harvard University's Graduate School of Design. But the reality is it wasn't intimidating at all. Went in there and I stayed true to who I was and people were authentically appreciative of it, I had an amazing trip. I feel like I haven't said enough but I want to get this out there so I'll come back and writer more if it feels right.

-Love You and Thank You for your support

FieldTrip™

FieldTrip™

Last week was the very first FieldTrip™ I worked with camp counselor Judy and we took 30 students from a summer camp at Covenant Faith Church of God to @mcachicago to check out he @takashipom and @awstudioart exhibits it was such an awesome time. Murakami's work has inspired me so much and when I saw the show I thought to myself I have to get as many kids down here to see this because the work has the potential to inspire minds of our brilliant youth. I also just recently met artist Amanda Williams Imani I love her work and her person. She's a very inspiring artist and the work is so Close to my chicago experience 🙏🏾. I plan to do more FieldTrip™s in the near future because they allow me a clear space to contribute. If you'd like to sponsor a trip, volunteer in a trip or recommend a group of kids to take on the trip please let me know.
