Born in San Diego and raised near lakes in the mountains of So Cal, I spent a lot of my formative years playing with Legos, and other toys of which i would stare at the backs of the packages to dream of what to get next. I’d also pass the time writing stories and constantly drawing.
These days I spend my time in New York being inspired, getting lost and painting pictures to pass the time. Current artistic inspirations include: Winsor McCay, Margaret Kilgallen, Marcel Dzama, Hayao Miyazaki, Aubrey Beardsley, Ernest Shepherd, Mary Blair and many more. I think mark-making and storytelling are the most important things we can pass on.
