Growing up in Houston, Eli discovered a passion for the arts. After high school he attended Houston Community College, exploring various mediums while helping to establish ArtStorm Gallery in the Houston Museum District. After freelancing, he applied to the KCAI, where he was awarded the Transfer Competitive Scholarship, making the dream of studying design a reality. Now a senior in Graphic Design,
Eli has received several awards and scholarships, including the 2012-2013 AIGA Worldstudio Scholarship.
