Age of Life
I am a native Virginian, multi-media contemporary artist and photographer. I started painting at the age of 7 and received recognition early in life for my award winning Jackson Pollack recreation.
I have a passion for designing anything that moves me. I designed the second-generation Martini Racing Ducati Panigale and built a handful of motorcycles for marketing pursuits with Ducati North America. In 2011, I won the Ducati Monster Challenge. Gaining recognition for the best custom designed Monster in the nation accelerated my status as a designer.
I founded my own cigar company and produced two blends that were carried throughout a dozen states in affiliation with Rocky Patel Cigars. I sold my blends and dissolved my company after suffering an unexpected stroke and pursued healthier life choices. Blending cigars may no longer be my creative outlet but my passions are alive and well. I continue actively painting and designing. Life is wonderful!
I love spending time with my son, Maverick, racing cars and karts, reading comics and building legos.
I currently work as a designer for government applications and have designed dozens of corporate identities for many leading companies in the government space.
