:: Contract Gig at Apple for iTunes Music Store ::

Posted by flavorinnovator in inspiration, news, personal | No Comments » »


Today I added some more weight on the bar. On top of keeping FlavorInnovator my main source of income and pushing murals as Illuminaries, I started a contract at Apple designing graphics for the iTunes Music Store. Took this on not out of necessity, but to be challenged, learn, and pow wow. #noexcuses

:: We’re Expecting … A Baby Girl! ::

Posted by flavorinnovator in news, personal | No Comments » »

Yes, that’s right! There’s a bun cooking in the oven. Or in this case a little wonton simmering in the bowl. We’ve been trying to conceive since early 2011 and after some hard work and long hours (pun intended) we are finally blessed. As of today Michelle will be 20 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Expected due date is May 31st. Might be a Gemini like her mommy. With knowledge from having my previous child, early planning, and support from fam and friends  I think we’re ready as we’ll ever be to bring our little wonton into the world. Can’t wait for all of us to teach and learn from each other. Hella excited to say the least!
