Here I am.
My artistic origins begin in Kindergarten, when I received a class award for my bear drawing. This was a defining moment, learning that I am driven by appreciation.
I think what sets me apart as an artist is that I am less inspired to express my vision than I am motivated to create works that inspire and motivate others.
My greatest achievements are those with the greatest impact in my community and among those close to me.
I don't have a great deal of what people think of as formal training. I took art electives in high school with casual teachers. I taught myself as much as I could by taking on projects I knew nothing about and learning on the fly. This remains my preferred method of development to this day.
Entering adulthood, I began accumulating knowledge morsels from exceptional mentors in small doses.

My development finally took a structured turn when my apprenticeship began with Chris Rhyason in 2013. Expanding upon my fundamentals and learning the tattoo arts, my vision honed into the space-oriented expression that it has become today.
