Who I am, what I do.
I grew up in a small town in Michigan, the kind of place where bored high school kids (us) raced their cars around a horse pasture for fun. My parents encouraged my interest in art and music from an early age and since we lived in the middle of nowhere I had a lot of time to develop it.
I moved to the Grand Rapids area in 2000 to attend college at Grand Valley State University, graduating in 2005 with a Bachelor of Fine Art with an illustration emphasis.
Since college I’ve been working as a Graphic Designer for local businesses around Michigan.
Though I’ve enjoyed the Graphic Design work I’ve done over the years, my career goals are to further my education with a MFA and illustrate children’s books. I've also become quite in interested in neotraditional tattoo art and may explore that route in the future.
