Born and raised in and around Houston, Tx, I grew up with a passion for art, music, and action sports. I’ve been drawing since before I can remember with a love for pen and water color. In fifth grade we were given recorders. This led to me joining band playing clarinet and bass clarinet, which eventually led to my first guitar at fifteen and more recently my first banjo. I quit baseball in high school because my passion was with skateboarding, which has been a huge part of my life ever since. In 2006 I lost a good friend and my father within a few months of each other. This was the turning point in my life that caused me move to Florida in 2006 to pursue my dream to create for a living.
