A few of my projects have won national awards.
I've been featured in a few books.

- 2,500 winning logos
- From 601 designers
- In 68 different countries

Recognized Locally for Philanthropy and Activism
Sitting at home in 2020, watching my city burn from civil unrest in the wake of yet another senseless killing, I decided to use the Houston beer blog that I built to do some good.
My friends and I were able to raise nearly $5k to donate to George Floyd’s family, and I had the privilege of leading the conversation in my community around embracing imperfection through hard convos with BIPOC.
“It’s not enough to not be racist. We need to be actively against racism,” Anthony continued. “We need to be open-minded when we’re presented with views that clash with our own, and we need to be more concerned with loving people than we are with being right.” – Me
