Beneficiary of the 3rd Annual Derby Day Event
Nate was pursuing his dream…working as a graphic artist in Saint Croix. One fateful night, when Nate was a passenger in a friends car, they crested a knoll and ran head on into another accident. Nate suffered a spinal cord injury. His family, especially his mother, rallied around him as he reset and began crafting a new life.
Nate started by going back to the beginning, his first love…art. He has focused his energy on creating fantastic artwork and building his design firm. As the beneficiary of the 3rd Annual Derby Day Event, the foundation was able to donate funds towards building a specialized art studio where Nate could continue his passion to create artwork, designs and prints while continuing his journey back from a Spinal Cord Injury.
