About Me

A Queens Native, now residing in Brooklyn. It started in the early 80’s, growing up in  St.Albans, Queens. Known for its deep history in Jazz and Hip-Hop culture. Growing up there turned me into “a Hungry Hip-Hop Junkie” with a passion for visual art and new technology. Basically, you can find me doing something creative and listening to Hip-Hop music or writing code and listening to a podcast. I founded my business, StompinGrounDigital Design (SGD-DESIGN) in 2010, many years after I first came up with the name and kept putting it off. I never imagined I would be working on a variety of high profiled websites seen by people world-wide. Some of my most recent projects include: Loud Speakers Network, YouGottaEatThis!, Swaray, BCakeNY and Black Girls Rock .
