I was born and raised in Long Beach, CA. My love for art was sparked by the graffiti displayed on trains and buildings he saw during daily commutes with my mom when I was young. That stop and go traffic enabled me to become familiar with the lines, forms, shapes, and colors used in the guerrilla medium. While still in middle school, I was given my first paying gig designing a logo for a local karate studio in California.
In 2009, I fulfilled a life long dream of traveling to Japan. It was during this trip that I, once again, was able to open his mind and study the drawings, paintings, architectural landscapes and, yes, graffiti of an entirely new culture.
Before moving to North Dakota, I worked at Five and Dime Tattoo in Oakland, CA for 4 years. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my super hot wife, Lauren, and my awesome son, Daniel.
