Born in Oregon but raised in southern California, art has been part of my life as early as I found out Santa Clause didn’t exist. Years later after the awkward childhood, teenhood, and probably still adulthood, I pursue my career as a graphic designer and a fine artist. It’s safe to say I’m more successful doing that than my attempt to be a mixed martial arts fighter and male model.
I describe myself as a graphic designer influenced from my background and love for the fine arts and Frankenstein movies. I felt there was a strange correlation between fine artist and graphic design even though they both share a lot of the same rules and theories. Graphic designers can’t draw and paint while fine artist makes the worst business cards and fliers. I consider myself flourishing and learning in both areas. As I grew up drawing and immersing in art, I discovered graphic design as soon as I discovered computers. It was an obvious choice being an artist and computer literate at a young age.
