About

 

Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I left my homeland at the age of 14 to discover the world on my own, it has and continues to be an amazing journey. Currently, I reside in Long Beach California with my wife, two kids and a dog by the name Bella. I'm a philanthropist, an artist, and a surfer.

I have had the privilege to work on three Super Bowl spots, partnerships with FIFA and NFL.
