"I look back over at my life and I know I have been inspired by greatness, I thank God that he put giants in my life that cared about being great and are an asset to the culture. Avant Black is a result of the culmination of being from an urban setting that is conscious: We grind, we build, we connect. As a result, I wanted to create a brand that encompasses the rich culture of the African Diaspora which is Avant Black."

"We are culturally and stylistically advanced. We are original. We are Black! A musician at heart, I was inspired to help create Avant Black by Avant Garde Jazz. Being born and raised in Kansas City, MO, Jazz is very much part of our culture. Like Jazz, Avant Black is a product of the black experience and our hope is to remind others that we are creators, we are originators, we are Avant Black."
