SAN BERNARDINO MURAL ARCHIVE
The purpose of this project came from a yearning to document and honor the work that has made the streets of San Bernardino that much more vibrant. Too often, murals go up and come down with little to no documentation. This ongoing project will stand as the beginning of an archive of the histories of murals within the city of San Bernardino. Please stay tuned as these photos make their way into a collection of zines.

At this moment he is working on several projects such as; paintings, drawings, commissions, group shows, publications, and working to earn his Masters of fine arts degree. Hopefully, earning a teaching position at University or College while still doing everything that he loves to do in the diverse, safe and creative community that he is part of.
