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


I was born in 1989 in Connecticut and raised in Los Gatos, California. I currently live in Portland, Oregon.


What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures


I've had an intense passion for drawing every since I picked up a crayon for the first time! I just never stopped.


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


I don't know a lot about pro skateboarders, though I'm very interested. I started skating when I designed my first deck a few years ago and put wheels on it! I can cruise around pretty well now.


Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?


My favorite artist is Egon Schiele :)

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


I love eating, soaking up sunshine, playing ukulele, biking around and hanging out with my buddies. Taking pictures is pretty fun too!


Who are your biggest influences


Whenever I find a friend that's passionate about creating things, they influence my greatly in a positive way.



What mediums do you enjoy working in?


The mediums I like most are ballpoint pen, watercolor, gouache, and oil paint!


Anything else you want to tell?


I'm so happy I got to work on a skateboard for this show!! I want to paint and design lots more decks in the future, they're so much fun. Thanks!
