Born in Philly, and raised in Pittsburgh, I moved to Los Angeles after acquiring my BFA in Illustration from Syracuse University. I pursued a creative career in Los Angeles for several years after I arrived. I made a living by illustrating books, painting, and working in the video game industry, all in an attempt to find a creative direction that I was passionate about. Eventually I sought out a tattoo apprenticeship and my intense passion for creating art in the skin was quickly realized. I enjoy tattooing vivid colors, realism, food tattoos and anything nerdy. I also really enjoy using watercolors and colored pencils. When I am not tattooing or painting, you’ll find me spending time with my wife and daughter and playing video games.
