There is not a lot of personal info about me out there, just the inks for the most part. I am still digesting the evolution of my practice and career. Everything has been so fast, surreal and amazing that I am trying to keep my head straight and my feet on the ground.

The best thing of being a traveling artist is working alongside so many talented artists. I have been lucky enough that people have found me through social media and invite me to their shop. And that is a great honor for me, to be received with welcoming arms to their beloved space. I am so thankful to have that exchange of energy and ink. That is the best thing about traveling and tattooing; trading and collecting permanent memories from some of the awesomest souls I have met.
I have so much more to learn, explore and experiment. There is so much that only years of experience can teach you.
