My dear mother knew I was going to be an artist at the age of 4. I have drawn since I was 2-3 years old. I think that is my greatest talent, my drive to draw paint and tattoo. I excelled in school with my art. In high school I had the fortune of being taught by the late Ross Shellenberger who was my mentor and my biggest influence to date. Ross introduced me to watercolor painting, I had done hundreds of paintings in high school and continue to paint to this day. At 17 years of age I was drawing caricatures at six flags great America. Subcontracting under Fasen Arts. I attended American Academy of art in Chicago Il. In the fall of 1989. I moved from caricatures to airbrushing t-shirts, leather coats, motor cycles cars etc with in the next few years. This took me to Las Vegas, L. A. And then Milwaukee. I then was offered a tattoo apprenticeship with the now deceased Roy Boy in Gary Indiana in January of 1993. I spent another few years juggling tattooing and airbrushing before I decided to make tattooing my career. I have been in the Fox River Valley tattooing ever since.

I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, having grown up on a steady diet of cartoons, comic books, monster movies, and rock 'n' roll. As a kid and a teenager, I made my own comics and fanzines, and did art for local metal bands. After attending the UW system and FVTC and ending up with an AD in printing and publishing, I spent 6 years as a graphic designer. In 2003, I made a career change and began my journey into the world of tattooing, making art my number one priority again. In 2007, having spent four years at a shop in Menasha, I nervously approached Oshkosh Tattoo shortly after they opened and was hired on the spot, and have been here ever since!

Hello everyone! I have been working at Oshkosh Tattoo since 2010 but got may start in this fabulous industry in the spring of 2005. I LOVE what I do, and feel so fortunate to be able to do art every day! Tattooing and painting are my passions, and my family and friends are my life. When I was invited to join this wonderful family, I literally jumped at the chance to work with these incredibly talented people. We all have so much fun here together!
I have loved art my entire life, ever since I could hold a paintbrush, in fact. My dad was also an artist and we would draw and paint together when I was very young. I continued this passion all through college and graduated with a Bachelors in Fine Art in 2001.
