Born and raised in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, I received my first tattoo in 2009 and began tattooing in 2011. Since then I’ve worked to make myself a well rounded tattooer, and while I am comfortable with any style, occasionally even dabbling in Illustrative or Neotraditional, I lean more towards realism in all my work. 

After 6 years in the U.S. Marine Corps reserves, I finished my time in the service in late 2015. The experiences I had there are ones that I carry everyday, but now that my enlistment has ended, I plan to spend more time traveling to conventions around the US - pushing myself further professionally and artistically through both tattooing and painting.  Outside of art I enjoy shooting, gaming, reading, and alot of outdoorsy stuff I don’t have much time for, but most of all I enjoy spending time with my wife Vanessa,and our dog Odie.
