Born and raised in Seattle Wash. Came down to the SF Bay Area in my junior year of HS. Went to the San Francisco Art Institute for a BFA & MFA in painting. Afterwards found there was no way to make a living as an artist so went back to school and learned engineering drafting. Since then it's painting, painting, and more painting. Then when I'm not painting I'm a civil engineering AutoCAD designer. Then I paint some more.
