He has been featured in ChicagoReader for his keen fashion sense, STL Today, and The Riverfront Times for his musical performances. IkeZero is an artist whose work has lent itself to expression in the social justice movement/community.
As a digital storyteller, Ike is currently in the studio working with on-going projects as a recording artist, producer/ video editor-director.
