Born in San Antonio, Texas in the spring of 1988, I'm a trained Illustrator/ Photographer from the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL. I've also had extensive course work that focused on Asian Studies and Anthropology with an additional focus on Japan. I've always enjoyed art (and music) since I was young being that it was a constant in my military brat life. When I was a junior in high school, I decided art was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I love comics (akahon, graphic novels, etc.) and video games, collect Hello Kitty and Gloomy Bear goods, and read sci-fi/ fantasy books as much as possible. I am also an avid devourer of coffee.
