I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio where I still reside. I have been artistically active since I was a child. I was obsessed with books, comics and video games for as long as I can remember and wished to emulate the stories I experienced in my own fashion. In my youth I drew my own comics and monsters, super heroes and the worlds they inhabited.
I attended The Ohio State University from 2004 to 2009. It was during this time that I developed the painting style that I still work with today. I eventually graduated with a BFA in painting and drawing. I never pursued graduate school or a career in the art field but I remain an active painter to this day. I strive to continually challenge myself to hone my skills as an artist.
