Aside from dancing, Wealthy also works as a graphic designer. In 2012, Phonseya’s graphic design career began with the launch of his designs for House of Dance Twin Cities (HODTC), a local studio dedicated to hip hop dance. As both an instructor and designer, Wealthy, alongside the HODTC team, branded the studio from the ground up. Other design work includes event posters/flyers for local dance competitions, jams, and theater shows in the Twin Cities.
