Pin-back button story:
Ever since childhood I've been obsessed with buttons and wear a lot of them! I've worn and lost a lot of buttons over time, but my current favorite one is my "Love" button. I definitely think buttons can help save the world! Not only do they encourage self-expression, they also can create a connection with others who relate to the content of a button.
Additional information/Special announcements: I'm currently working on some freelance projects and creating stickers and designs to incorporate with my graffiti work. Hoping to make some t-shirt designs soon!
