About

hey monkey

I'm 45. A Designer, illustrator, educator, screen printer, community builder. A lot of hats, one head. I am a dreamer, blue sky thinker. ENFP-A on the Myers Briggs scale. I thrive in group activities and social interaction. Probably stemming from my days as a touring musician. Blues and Classic R&B if you are curious though my youth was spent with long hair and headbanging to the Sunset Strip.

I'm sold! let's get to work!

The Story

A Lot of Hands. All Heart

The Studio

Built By Community.

After 15 years of working for myself in a home office, I felt like it was time to think bigger, be bigger. Believe in myself and plant a flag in the ground. So in August of 2014 I signed a lease on a 1700 sq. ft. warehouse space in the bustling and bursting mecca of Durham, North Carolina. A design studio, a print shop, a creative experience where anyone can get energized and inspired to reignite into the best version of themselves.

Durham, NC

The Dirty "D"

Bull Durham. The City of Medicine. Durm. The Dirty D. Dripping with cultural history and pure authenticity Durham has truly become home to Hey! Monkey. Moving to Durham was not something I expected to ever do. I was a Raleigh guy. I live on that end of town, my social life was there and it seemed like Durham was a world away. But stepping outside of my comfort zone and making Durham my studio home was one of the best decisions I could have made.
