"I wield art as a weapon, smashing down the false identities, perceptions, and stories we tell ourselves every day.

The goal is to reduce the clutter and find that inner you. I use creative arts to re-invent, reassure, and re-adjust as we set sail to show you off to the world—together. My approach to my work embodies the values of respect, integrity, and selfless service. As a natural-born creative,

I am intuitive, unapologetically experimental, and obsessed with creating extensions of myself within my work and aiding my clients in doing the same within theirs. I love what I do and love the people who trust me to do it." -Stephen 'Swizz' Banks
