My co-worker/bud Rachal Duggan also happens to be an amazing artist! Check out her Halloween animation!
The Andersonville Development Corporation commissioned RX Made to design and build a small public park to occupy two parking spaces in one of Chicago’s most lively neighborhoods. We built the entire structure in the RX warehouse, took it apart, and reassembled it at the intersection of Clark and Olive. 100% reclaimed materials. Special thanks to the IIA interns, Brian Bonanno, Latent Design, and CDOT.
The RX Made team made a wall of doors for the Rebuilding Exchange front entrance. Definitely not an original idea, but a great use for cast-off doors we always seem to have an abundance of. A collaboration between Meegan, Dwayne, Casey, Ilithya, and me.
The RX Made Bottle Openers designed by Strand are finally on sale at Whole Foods in Chicago. Go buy one at the 1550 N. Kingsbury Street location, also known as the 3rd largest WF in the world! We are honored that they are carrying our product. They even let us design a display.
I was recently interviewed for an article in CityMag, a Northwestern University publication.
Myself and a few other “Chicago-area artists reflect on how re-salvaged materials mirror the human condition.”

While Chicago sat gray and flooded, Jway and I recently took an impromptu roadtrip/”babymoon” to a much warmer, greener Memphis, Tennessee. There is a lot of gritty charm and history to this city. Sadly, there’s also a lot of boarded up businesses. Jway did a beautiful job capturing it all.
And we eat too much great food.
There’s a baby girl in there!
The crowded tour as Sun was worth it just to stand in the room where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee, and Howlin Wolf made there first recordings.
Beignets at The Arcade Restaurant.
“Walking with our feet 10 feet off of Beale.”
Jway outside of Stax. Recordings by Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, Isaac Hayes, and many others made here.
Great eats (catfish, hush puppies, crawfish, okra) at Soul Fish in the Cooper-Young neighborhood.
The motel where MLK was assassinated. There was a big crowd there protesting the $27 million being spent to renovate the museum while Memphis remains the poorest large metro area in the nation.
