I was born in 1985 in Farmington, NM. My family moved to Detroit, MI when I was three. Growing up on the infamous 8 mile road had a profound impact on my interests and outlook. In high school the only thing that excited me were my drawings so upon graduation I decided to enroll at Ringling College of Art + Design in Sarasota, Florida which is a far journey from Michigan. I originally enrolled as a computer animation major. That lasted 3 years. I switched to illustration and got back to my drawing. I supplemented my schooling with 2 years of the incredible Illustration Academy. I look forward to the upcoming adventures my life will bring!
