For the past twenty years I have served as the catalyst for successful marketing campaigns and business development initiatives. My extensive sales management qualifications, complemented by a proven track record, has resulted in delivering value to my co-workers and clients.

The success I have achieved in my sales career has come from my ability to understand my clients' needs and establish long-lasting partnerships with them. The dedication to each team I have worked with and the natural ability to establish consensus among cross-functional lines both within a company and with its clients has lead to consistent promotions throughout my career.

Possessing innate artistic and graphic design abilities, I have realized the dream of starting my own business. This has also allowed me the opportunity to work with a broad range of businesses including restaurants, night clubs, non profits, internet start-ups and local recording artists.

Bad Monkey Designs

Graffiti Inspired Urban Wear

Excerpt from the Bad Monkey Designs website:

"Yep. That's the tag. That's what it's all about. But...what does it mean? Well, let's start by telling you that Bad Monkey Designs was the brainchild of one Christopher Sosa (or "Sos" - as all his peeps call him) in May of 2006. Sos wanted to bring the gritty urban feel of a back alley onto the threads of those daring enough to sport them. Art, graffiti and music have always played a huge role in his influence, so it only seemed fitting to make this his artistic outlet.

The designs you see today on our merchandise are all inspired by actual graffiti that has been photographed, or that is on display. By taking a piece of the designs that catches his eye, Sos will use these sprayed works of art as a guide in creating something of his own. Most often, they are free hand drawings by the man himself, based on all the hot illustrations out on the streets."
