I like to think Sharon Hudson and the AEF found me. I was still a Junior Art Director when I was asked to speak for the first time and it really gave me a sense of purpose outside of making the actual work. As my career grew, so did my love for guest speaking and letting students know what potentially awaited them, if they chose this career path as well as giving them the confidence I wish I had coming up in the industry.

Ms. Williams. She was my freshmen/sophomore year art teacher and she just bought it to me as a person for some reason and there wasn’t very much to buy into at the time. Looking for her these days. I hope she’s well.
Creating. No matter if I’m creating something for the platform with my team or simply creating a conversation with someone on the broader global team. TikTok really is the ultimate hub for creativity right now. Of course, I’m bias.
