JAX studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where he fell in love with live music and adventure. During this time he discovered the world of screen printed concert posters, and started creating and selling bootleg concert posters at music festivals in 2006. What started as a summer hustle snowballed over the years into a career creating for some of his favorite bands, DJs, music festivals and brands.
In 2015, JAX started the clothing brand First Earth. After years of designing apparel for his clients, he decided to take the show on the road and has been traveling to music festivals around the country with First Earth ever since.
