In 2017, this intersection in my hometown of Charlottesville became known as a symbol of hate. In the middle of the night 2 years later, I drew the crosswalk into a symbol of unity.
The picture soon became the number one photo on Reddit worldwide and a CNN top news story.
Before and after
Knock the Vote
Knock the Vote was a campaign I created with ACRONYM to get younger people excited to vote against Trump in 2018. It was soon written about a lot: TIME, Huff Post, & AOL
This was the ad that really put Knock The Vote on the map. It was featured in every major news outlet and
chosen national Ad of the Week.
Knock the Vote was written about by media outlets like Time, CNN, Huff Post and Now This. The Video "Don't Vote" was reposted by celebrities like Alicia Keys and Russell Crowe.
Knock the Vote was part of a larger effort that helped register 50,000 new voters.
Together We Grow
After serving Charlottesville for 100 years, my family's tree company, Van Yahres Tree Company, wanted to give a gift
back to community.
After the violence in the city of 2017, I designed this mural, only a couple blocks away, with the intention of bringing positivity through trees and people. Trees may come in all shapes and sizes but just like people, they grow stronger together.
The 'W' was meant to show all women coming together. The 'WIN' in 'Women' uncovered a message that had been hidden for far too long. Soon, the logo was worn and talked about by celebrities like Halle Berry, Chelsea Handler, Lea Michele and many more.

Someone even put a shirt of The Fearless Girl
Armed with only t-shirts and hand bags, we were able to donate the max amount of money to many women candidates in 2018. 97% of those candidates won their election.

In 2017, the NFL wouldn't let
Colin Kaepernick play, so I designed
a logo we could all wear for him.
A couple of months later, Eric Reid from the 49er's, the man who originally took a knee with Colin Kaepernick, wore it in a game.
Then, the main man himself even posted about it.
My soccer team in San Francisco wore the shirts as jerseys.
