What exactly do you do for a career?
I paint and customize shoes. My work has been seen on ESPN, Fox4KC, and KETV and California Herald. Painting art on shoes that you can not find or buy in stores.
What was the process for you to find what you wanted to do?
I’ve always been interested in art, I also love being able to connect with customers and mentor upcoming artists.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Being able to build a relationship with all of my customers, and seeing their reactions once the shoes are complete.
Can you tell us about your company/job/hustle?
Customizes shoes and create what you can’t buy in stores.
What do you want your audience to know?
Follow and never give up on your dreams. If I would have listened to the hate I received a few years back I wouldn’t be featured in this article. You are the only person stopping you from reaching those dreams.
What is your greatest success so far?
Working with the celebrities that I do, Overtime flew me out to New York to be featured on an episode of “paint wars” and also seeing my work on ESPN.
Where did you grow up?
What are some of the challenges you faced along the way?
Growing up in the struggle, I had to work for everything I received. Nothing was ever handed to me, but it made a stronger person.
What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur?
Strive each day to try and make your product better than it was yesterday. Don’t expect to be perfect, especially at first. Learning from your mistakes are really important. Building credibility and also networking is key!
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
Being known all around the world, and customizing shoes for some of the biggest celebrities.
What is some advice you would give to a young entrepreneur?
It takes money to make money, in order to have a successful business you must invest money into it. Always be open for feedback because everyone can be doing better.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My father who passed away in last September. Also my close friends Joey Bacon, Tubbz, and Ryan Loftus.
Anything else your audience should know?
One of my ultimate goals is to be able to inspire the youth. I have taught and mentored numerous upcoming artists around the world and I love every minute of it. I want to be able to bring in multiple artists under my wing and teach them everything I know and help them grow, not only as an artist but as a human being. I also don’t want to put my kids through what I went through and that’s one of the reasons why I work so hard.
