For the past 15 years Byron has worked in both the art and education field and social services in many different capacities. He started off as a Social Group worker for United Church Neighborhood and later became assistant program director, Director of Seigal Caring Communities program and a Community Art Program Manager for Bi-State/ Metro Arts in Transit program.
