Born and raised in the mission district of San Francisco. Surrounded by the rich murals and graffiti scene. I quickly soaked in my environment; I knew at a young age art would be a huge part of my life. I never studied art in any traditional form but the past 26 years all I've been doing is practicing drawing, painting and now for the past year and a half tattooing. I have much more fun with traditional and neo traditional but I'm down for whatever; I'm all about custom work, never copy.
