While in Florida, I studied Art, Directing and Film for 2 years (2009-2011) while attending the Art Institue, Miami International University of Art and Design. I have been working on a series of graphic novels since 1995 (openings to each can be found on Amazon) and continue to develop these with my wife. I am passionate about artwork in many mediums, whether it be tattooing, airbrushing, canvas pieces, wall murals or working in clay. I enjoy hand-drawing and creating/designing tattoo flash for custom pieces.
