I was born in Oklahoma in 1976 and grew up drawing cartoon characters from my imagination. When I was 10 years old, I moved with my family to the San Francisco Bay Area where I attended high school. Throughout high school, I continued to develop my passion for art and my admiration for tattoos. By the time I graduated high school, I had a strong desire to pursue a career as a tattoo artist. However with no apprenticeships availble, I decided to go to college instead. After receiving an associates in Liberal Arts, I got a job at a moving company and spent a few more years studying to be a recording engineer. Then by chance, I was offered an apprenticeship while getting some tattoo work done in Fairfield, CA. I spent the next few years learning the tattoo trade while working at Heaven or Hell tattoos in Fairfield, CA and at Damaged Lifestyle Tattoos in Vacaville, CA. Next I spent a year working in Vallejo, CA at Allied Ink Tattoos and Piercings and a year and a half at the White Rabbit Tattoo parlor in Fairfield, CA. I am currently working at Alpha Omega Tattoos and Piercings in Fairfield, CA living the dream and loving what I do for a living. I feel truly blessed to have a career that I enjoy and I strive every day to become the best artist/tattooer that I can be. Thank you for taking a moment to learn a bit about me:)
