About Me

I grew up in the great city of Denver, CO. Early in life I was adventurous always wanting to try new things, make mistakes, and being crazy. Traveling the country on a skateboard, hanging with friends and working some to keep me going were my usual past times. Life was always evolving daily but one thing that never changed was my passion for art. From the moment I could hold a pencil, I was drawing. I loved being the kid that all the others wanted to draw their idea's. Then I met this girl, and she wanted tattoos, something I had never really even thought about. I drew up a tattoo design for her in College back in 2004 and went with her to get this permanently inked.

It looked so fun and exciting to make changes to people that would stick with them for a lifetime! So I had to try it, I had to be the best at it, and I loved everything about it. I ordered my first tattoo kit, and began to learn a new craft. This was not the ideal way of going about learning how to tattoo... but thats how it went for me, trial and error.

I always loved solid color tattoos, and new school style. I explored tattoo magazines and books during my early years, blown away with the industry and its talent.

I have always aspired to be someone that made an impact in the scene. Constantly advancing and refining my skills, keeps me extremely busy and motivated to continue climbing to the next level.

I still reside in Colorado, and currently tattoo full time at Mile Hi tattoo in Thronton, CO. I am very interested in creating the next piece of custom art work for you.
