At the age of 5 he became fascinated with watching artists catch tags on the bus with his mom in his Native city of San Francisco. His fascination later turned into a skill. Sketching turned into writing, which in turn became his lifestyle. Being mentored by older cousins and established street writers got him into various crews and some that are still around til this day.
In the mid nineties he picked up his first ride, a skateboard. Which was very taboo in his neighborhood. Not too many African American men were seen riding skateboards around the Fillmore district at that time. He kept it moving despite the people around him saying it was only a ‘White boy thing’.
As he got older ‘going against the grain’ was becoming a part of who he was. After becoming amazed by seeing the bicycles that were only used in the Olympics, he decided he had to have one. He saved his money and got his first Fixed Gear bike and got a job riding around his city as a bike messenger for about six years. His talent became his passion and became highly skilled at riding what most would say is ‘A very dangerous’ bike.
Next came an obsession for street wear, fashion and sneakers. Which lead him into working with some of the greats in the business, and becoming influenced not only the graphic designers and creators, but his own colleagues that worked right along with him. He created a close bond to those he came across and learned a lot from all of his experiences at HUF.
By 2011 he had made friends with various skill sets and similar interests from taking trips all over the world to places such as Japan, Paris, & New York. Thus building more than a network, but a family gaining more cultural knowledge about everything that motivates him.
His so-called rebellious life style has lead him to create his own ‘Terrible’ look. Mixing together his love for Graffiti Art/Photography, Street wear, Hip Hop, Hard core metal rock and above all things being comfortable while on his skate board or bike.
