Back when I was 16 years old I embarked on an adventure. I knew I had the God-given gift of creativity and I was on a quest to discover my calling and just how I would use art to impact people. I began helping small business owners with advertising and marketing. I would work forty to sixty-hour weeks creating signs, package design, branding, and art to help tell their story and build their brand.
After years of hustle and building my own brand I began having a yearning for telling my own stories through art. Even though I didn’t have money for a major university to learn art, I knew I wanted to share stories that would impact people. I began long nights of painting fine art and started my own publishing company which created limited edition art, posters and licensed goods. It took off. I built manufacturing and marketing systems to create and market the products. I began working with companies like Universal Pictures, Costco, The Walt Disney Company, and Toyota. I’ve toured the globe selling art at auctions and galleries. As my art company gained momentum I invested into other ventures. I created a media agency doing branding, web development, and marketing of online products. It has been a dream but there has been great responsibility to these dreams.
Years of growth came with many pain points, challenges, and hurdles. I was newly married, raising our young family and building two companies. There came a point in my life when I realized that there was more to life than being a successful business man and providing for my family. In short, I wanted to help change the world using creativity and stories. More important, I felt called to help other creative entrepreneurs reach and achieve their dreams of building their own brand and businesses.
