Born in Palmer Alaska, I was raised in Truxton Arizona where I learned to love art through my very creative family. Among all the other careers a small boy may want, artist remained at the top of the list throughout my life. I have been drawing since I was a small child sitting in my mothers office making scribbles on copy paper.
When I entered high school, my mother and I moved and I became much more independent. By eighteen I took two gap years before going to a small bible college in upstate New York. Upon completing my degree, I stayed on as the resident graphic artist for a time.
With an art and design-centric degree from SUNY Broome as well as having studied art at Binghamton University, I am currently working as a phoenix based artist.
