Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?
I was born in 1983 in San Francisco and grew up just north of there. I'm currently living and and printing in Portland, Oregon.
What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?
Art is something that came into my life in my early 20s. I thought for a minute that I might be a psychologist but this has been a lot of fun.
Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?
I was at the x games when Tony Hawk pulled off the first 900 in 1999. It was an amazing experience to witness someone accomplish something they'd been working at for so long. That dude is just a legend and a trailblazer at the highest level.
Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?
It's so impossible for me to answer this question. I'm inspired by someone everyday. There are so many brilliant artists saying so much with eloquence I just love them all.
When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?
I've got a 4 year old daughter. She is the greatest thing on the earth for me. When I'm not making art I just pay homage to her.
Who are your biggest influences?
People that I've gotten to know and live with. My uncle Allen when I was young. Shane P. Condino, Sark Han and Andy Lin in my early 20s really showed me the artist in me.
What mediums do you enjoy working in?
I'm primarily a screen printer but I love working collage into that and I have a deep love for sound and music that often gets set on the back burner to running a business and raising a kid.
