Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?

 

I was born in Caldwell, Idaho in the good ol' U.S. of A! I currently live here in Portland, Oregon

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

Growing up I was extremely shy and I think art is the way I felt I could really communicate with people. 

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?

 

So many favorites! I would probably have to say Daewon Song. He has been ripping forever. The guy is a technical wizard and skates anything and everything. I have been skateboarding for almost 20 years! 

 

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

I could never have just one favorite artist. Although, I must say I do have a fascination with anything from Sam Flores, Alex Pardee, and Jeremy Fish. 

 

When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?

 

Skateboarding!

 

Who are your biggest influences? 

 

Anyone that can push me to step out of my comfort zone. 

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

I use acrylic paint and spray paints mostly, but I like to try anything I can get my hands on. 

 

Anything else you want to tell?

 

Thank you!
