Born and raised in Cathedral City, CA. I moved to Las Vegas, NV in 2011.
For as long as I could remember, drawing has always been a big part of my life. My grandpa, being a graphic artist himself, was definitely my biggest art influencer. Growing up, he always pushed for me to practice whenever I had a chance. I started off mostly drawing portraits and still life subjects.
I always found tattoos fascinating, but it wasn’t until after I got my first tattoo, I was hooked. The art form consumed my mind. All my drawings turned into tattoo design ideas, & I would draw 10x more. I was drawing more in class than I was studying. I’d draw at home, at work, til I finally realized that my whole heart was in it.
It took me many years to find the confidence to pursue this dream but the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Fortunate enough to start my lifelong apprenticeship at Skin Design. This is definitely a shop where I can learn, grow, and push myself. Can’t express my gratitude enough to be given the opportunity to be surrounded by a talented group of artists and to learn from my mentors everyday.
My friends and family will always be my greatest inspiration. Without their love and support I would never have made it this far in life. Lucky to have them on this journey.
