What is your all-time favorite movie?
Why the Texas Chainsaw Massacre of Course!!

What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about sleeping, eating, artwork, music, collectable toys, horror, riding motorcycles, thug life, prevention of animal cruelty, hashtagging, unicorns, inflatable devices, sword wheelding, pizza, spontaneous splits, oh and did i mention sleeping.

Coffee, tea or Coca-Cola?

What has Influenced your career?
Being able to work around and learn from super sick artists.  Traveling, studying art.

What is your morning routine?
I wake up, fall back to sleep, wake up again, then sleep again, then wake up, look at my phone for a while, look at my dog for a while……eventually i get outta bed, feed the dog let him make poops, eat super sugary cereal and get amped.  Then I work out for an hour with Mr Tony Horton.  Then its off to the shower, after that is vitamins, and coffee….a reward for a job well done.  Then I make my arduous and treacherous journey a block and a half to work.

If you could interview one person, who would it be and why?
Mike Patton cause he’s fucking nuts!!

Best advise you can give a new apprentice:
Listen up!!! Dont fuck off.  Pay attention to everyone, good and bad, and absorb the industry.  Creep on everyone on fb and insitgram and learn as much as possible from as many awesome artists as possible.  Listening and being humble go along way, don’t act like a fucking rock star cause you’re not one.

Career Highlights
I won Best of the Rally at “Run to the cascades” in Oregon  and tattoo of the day at Tommy’s Tattoo Convention (or whatever it’s called) in Connecticut, also first place color portrait at “Inkfest Live” in Washington, D.C., but that was last year……oh also did I mention I got second place on “Best Ink” hahaha
