Atlanta has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.

I was raised to be an entrepreneur, a leader, strong, and to always be humble. I appreciate life, love hard, and put family first! And though life may appear grand for me and my family, it didn’t start this way. Read more>>
I decided to transition out of design and into filmmaking full-time, focusing on directing, learning how to write for film and rediscovering the art and magic I enjoyed as a kid. Last year in July 2017, I started a commercial video production company with Nathan called Southend Films. Read more>>
