Born in El Cajon, California in 1979. I currently reside in New York City.



What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures


I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. The first thing I remember drawing "well" were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was all downhill from there.

No contest. Best skater out there is Rodney Mullen. I used to skate quite a bit up until my late twenties.

Hard to nail down a single favorite artist, but Andrew Bell is a huge inspiration. Also a huge fan of Mark Ryden, Kathy Olivas, Jeff Soto and Joe Ledbetter.

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


I'm a product guy, so I spend the majority of my time creating digital products such as mobile games and applications. I also do a lot of writing and photography.



Who are your biggest influences


Steve Jobs. The artists I listed above.



What mediums do you enjoy working in?


I primarily work with aerosol paints, acrylics and markers.
