Where are you from? And how did you end up here?
I am originally from San Diego, Ca. Circa 1985. Born and raised. I received my BA in graphic Design from the Art Institute of CA in 2006. After college I moved to Seattle, Washington where I worked at a thrift store for 3 years and independently studied the geography of the pacific NW. After a while of living in Seattle, I traveled to the midwest and east coast and became fascinated with the brick architecture and the city life of Chicago, so I moved to Chicago in 2010.
