I'm an artist from Chicago that loves to work with my hands. I grew up in Alsip, Illinois most of my life until the age of thirteen in which I moved to Chicago. After so many years in Chicago I got sick of it and just up and moved to San Juan, Puerto Rico for several months. I’m inspired by my grandfather who worked for Wilson Sporting Goods as a tennis racket designer until he retired in 2009. I yearn to create my own company that specializes and Longboards, T-Shirts, and beach style jewelry. I went to collage to learn a bit more but mostly I am self taught. I started drawing what other artist drew, copying each line drawing to the “T” until I learned how to draw from mind. Then I took what I learned and created my own style, drawing from my imagination. I’m really inspired by the late Michael Turner, Tim Burton, and a mentor Statik. From painting to web design I have done it all. I took architecture for 4 years and took courses in college for graphic design. Inspired by the life in Puerto Rico, I now work strictly as a freelance artist. I love to skateboard, buy clothes, draw, and go on any adventure life gives me.
