How long have you been a tattoo artist? Started in 1998
How did you get your start? I got my start from an artist named Tom Thomen. We met through mutual friends. I had always done artwork, and at the time I was focusing on airbrushing and pinstriping. He saw some of my artwork and asked me in a joking manner "so when are you gonna start tattooing?" So I took him up on it.
What is your favorite style of tattooing? My favorite style of tattooing is probably illustrative (new school ) it never gets old to me, but I also think I am well rounded and enjoy doing portraits and anything that makes for a striking piece.
What do you like to do outside of tattooing? Outside of tattooing, I enjoy spending time with my family... my wife Rachel, daughter Olivia, and son Dayson. When I'm not with my family, I play guitar in a band called Downshift, and paint as much as possible
What kind of music do you like? Most styles of rock... anything from stoner rock to metal.
Favorite movie? The Christmas Story
