Growing up in an impoverished neighborhood, I have always had a passion for helping others. During my junior year of high school, I was given the opportunity to participate in a community service activity. In an attempt to make the new year a little bit better for others, my school participated with a local church to feed the homeless. The experience was extremely humbling, and as a result, I still wish to help others in a similar fashion. Through dedication...

Story telling is the key to my imagination, a place where my deepest thoughts can become the plot twists for the ultimate stories of my alter-egos. One day I can be an American soldier reaching Normandy beach during one of the deadliest moments of WW2 , or maybe even an astronaut investigating a strange noise while aboard the Nostromo in the critically acclaimed science fiction movie, Aliens. Through images and a combination of words, I sketch the beginnings of a possible...
