Teachr is a 1991 graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida with a bachelor of fine arts in illustration. He did traditional commissioned art for private collectors and corporate clients for about 10 years. In 2004 was the first artist allowed to work on a painting in the corridors of the pentagon as a live art installation and was the first to do the same in the department of state display room in D.C. He has also coordinated an art exchange program from 2007-2009 between children in Harare, Zimbabwe and Florida. Married in 2009 and started graffiti in 2010 after the birth of his twins because at the same time, cuts in the education budgets and taking art out of schools was happening. Teachr's goal was to get caught by the police while doing graffiti to help get his message of "teach each child" to the masses. Arrested in December of 2011, he kept doing graffiti, but more carefully. He's appeared in a couple graffiti documentaries as well as the full feature "Pay2Play". Teachr helped to start a program making it legal for artists to put their artwork on electrical boxes at traffic light intersections. He also invented a stencil making process he's taught to dozens of artists who are now using the technique. Teachr is considered to be one of the top 10 graffiti artists in Los Angeles.
