I was born and raised in San Diego, but I've called San Francisco my home for more than ten years. I attended the Academy of Art University in SF originally to pursue comics, but wound up being drawn towards editorial illustration, graphic design, sometimes abstract expressionism. Once I would shun digital art, now 90% of my work is done through adobe illustrator. I draw influence and inspiration from what I like, Sci-fi, classic film, comics, old propaganda, history, comedy, punk rock, modern art, etc. I like to find the humor in everything, especially what frightens me and poke fun at it. Much of what I do is very tongue-in-check.
