A lifelong artist, he’s worked in multiple mediums and arenas, having eventually made his way into murals, thanks in part to the Atlantic City Arts Foundation. On a mission to help create opportunities for individuals and communities to experience more joy and connection, his work in the arts, wellness, and hospitality serve as an extension of that, as he’s created and collaborated on multiple pieces locally including: City Hall – “Enter The Center” The Boys and Girls Club of Atlantic City – “Dreams Begin Here”, Little Water Distillery -”The Spirit of Atlantic City”, Bourré – “Brand New Second Line” and Setaara – “A Return to Peace”.

Atlantic City Arts Foundation has the city’s largest mural arts program, with just under 80 murals completed throughout Atlantic City by local, regional, and international artists since 2017. Our three major programs create unique and interactive creative experiences that add beauty and richness to Atlantic City’s landscape as well as exciting artist opportunities, meaningful interactions with residents, and engaging events for tourists. We select artists through a community-reviewed application process to ensure high quality and relevant art is being selected. Our murals have been highlighted as the top 10 things to do in Atlantic City by Visit Atlantic City.
