During his time in college, he pledged for Lambda Sigma Upsilon. Through the brotherhood, he was able to meet creative souls which re-ignited that creative flame he’s had all along.

It was in that moment, that he saw a glimpse of his future. Since then, he pushed through the limiting barriers of his traditional upbringing and endeavored as an apprentice under Tiffany for a year and four months.
