I mostly draw. Everything else comes after that.
After a lifelong passion for it, I started actively studying art in 2000 at an art magnet program high school and went on to graduate from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration, along with my wife, Tina Poe. I started working as a freelance storyboard artist while in college, and dabbled in graphic design and interactive art direction after school for a short stint, before going back to freelancing as a storyboard artist and illustrator full time in 2009. In 2012, I met up with Scott Spencer at The Inkery and decided that tattooing was going to be my next venture.
