I was born and raised in hot and sunny Southern California and made most of my memories roaming around the hills, beaches, and constantly making art. Artistic visions have infected my brain since before I can remember but I was never quite sure what avenue to pursue. I wrote, drew, designed, made movies, and painted while managing to finally drop out of my third attempt at college. I fell in love with oil painting in 2009 and fully committed myself to it. Around the same time I reconnected with an old friend and tattooer who was the catalyst that pushed me towards tattooing. I must have been born under some lucky stars because I was fortunate enough to find myself an apprenticeship with Mike DeVries and MD Tattoo Studio. I started tattooing in the summer of 2014 and couldn’t be more grateful for where my life is and blessed with the incredible people I am surrounded by!
