In 1987 A portfolio of graffiti influenced work mixed with traditional high school art earned me acceptance into the School of the Arts Institute of Chicago (SAIC). During school, I majored in printmaking and practiced graffiti outside the institution.  After graduating in 1991, I moved back to Minneapolis and opened House of Daskarone. This was a Gallery, Studio, Print Shop, and Education Center. This gave birth to Juxtaposition Arts in 1995. I taught graffiti art next to other forms of visual arts, also a first in the Twin Cities. I resigned from the organization in 2008 to pursue other personal interest. Today I am a Bush Fellowship recipient (2012-2014). From my work as a Bush Fellow, I design curriculums and lesson plans that help bring graffiti art into schools and classrooms. I combined the aesthetics of graffiti with artistic foundations like artistic principals and design elements to teach graffiti as an educational course.
