Co-founder & Creative Capitán
Oh, you fancy huh!?
As a child, my favorite activity was drawing. I believe that my interest was formed during primary school when teachers setup different areas that featured varying activities. Drawing gave me freedom to be creative without bounds. Once introduced to graphic editing programs for computers, I began to extend my view of design. Business school @ UNC was great and all, but I sometimes wondered how I would later apply the principles I was learning in class to the real world. Outside of classes, people began to take note of my designs and website and would ask me to create logos for them or their organizations in school. College provided, and due to connections, still provides me a chance to connect back to campus by helping people create t-shirts for their groups, student body president campaigns, and general organizations. One day, a friend asked, “Why don’t you do your own t-shirts…and sell them?” After thinking about it, I didn’t have an answer – “Why don’t I?”

Approaching Alex with a general concept, it just seemed like we were a perfect fit to create a clothing brand together. We may bring different concepts, ideas, experiences, and backgrounds to the table, but what we both bring to Fresh From Birth is our passion for bringing fresh ideas & designs to people. Come with us on our journey as we begin to grow Fresh From Birth! If you have ideas, let’s connect and see what we can do. This is going to be a fun ride, hope you all are as ready as we are!
What I bring to the table ; )
Designer, Web Developer, Event Coordinator, & Model?
It’s funny, one of the things that I love about Fresh From Birth, are all the different roles I help play in its development. I don’t care what the task is, I love getting involved with all aspects – it is my lifestyle – a bit of work and lot of play. Since I’ve been a freelance web and graphic designer for a few years, it is an easy transition in creating content for Fresh From Birth – instead of always making it for clients.

The model thing…eh, I don’t know much about it, but it’s not a bad thing to go from behind the camera to trying to pose for the camera. Of course, we’re always looking for new talent to sport our wears 😛
Between Alex, myself, and those that we work with to put on various events, we’ve met some great people and have had fun working on something for weeks, and finally seeing those events come together – and even having people tell us they enjoyed it, want more, and even suggest us ideas 😀 Man, who could want more but to see apparel and events that you put out there, and have individuals take part and enjoy it all! I love it, and thanks always for the love that you guys bring us, it’s SUPER motivating!
