I’ve been a lot of places. South Korea. Washington (state). France. Spain. Ecuador. Panama. Jamaica. Nebraska.

Everything I've seen influences my art. It's all up there in my head somewhere, and it finds its way out in a sketch. Or maybe a color choice. Who knows where.

I’m still exploring.

I’m into music, running, MMA workouts. I started my own tattoo studio. Clearly, even with a full load of classes, I still have plenty of creativity to spare. Gotta use it or lose it.

Just trying to make the most of what I can do – in that moment, in that place. That’s the way I see it.

I probably wouldn’t have guessed it a few years ago, but right now, this is the place.
