A little about me…
I have been supporting businesses, artists, musicians and non-profits through Brand Storytelling, Strategic Marketing and Creative Design for close to eleven years. I have worked as an Art Director, Creative Director and Designer over the years. I began to focus on the process of brand storytelling as I become drastically aware of the lack of cohesiveness between companies, people or products and the story they tell via marketing. READ MORE
I have studied Art History, Commercial Art, Religion, and Philosophy and have become a fond student of both traditional and experimental Marketing and Branding Strategies.
I am a volunteer advocate for Arts, Education, and Community. I have served on the PTA PUSD Council Board, PTA Unit Board in the Pomona Unified School District and actively support local seasoned and emerging artists through our gallery, LOFTON2ND, during the Historic Downtown Pomona Art Colony’s ever-growing 2nd Saturday Art Walk. I have served with the National Endowment for the Arts on the Art Works: Multidisciplinary and Folk Arts Education panel. I am on the Millard Sheets Art Center Art Advisory Committee and am a Committee Member of the Los Angeles County Fair Pomona Community Committee. I am currently the Mayoral appointed Cultural Arts Commissioner for the City of Pomona. Together, I and my wife, Chara Nicole, with our children, Brooklyn Joy and Jackson Porter Gray, are committed to promoting Creative Innovation within our community.
