ART. CULTURE. STYLE.


“I see my life’s work and experiences bringing me to this point
in my life where I can help bridge the cultural divide
which exists between the Native and non-Native worlds.”

I am a proud Tigua Tribal Member from the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, husband, father, founder of Smoke Signals Marketing & Design, cultural advocate and surfer. 

I am blessed to see my life’s-path with the added perspective of looking through the eyes of my ancestors. I see the challenges I face in my life as obstacles to overcome, and lessons to learn from - in order to be prepared for the next steps in my life’s journey.

Drawing upon my life’s experiences and artistic gift, I have dedicated my life to sharing our Native-Story by working with Tribal Programs to create artwork and messages that empower people to feel proud of who they are, and where they come from.

Like my ancestors before me, I envision a better tomorrow for our future generations. I see my life’s work and experiences bringing me to this point in my life where I can help bridge the cultural divide which exists between the Native and non-Native worlds.

My vision for creating art, clothing and visual communications to support cultural, educational, environmental, political, and economic issues is a gift which comes with responsibility. But, it is a gift that I love and honor.
