    • Becoming a skateboarder at the age of six, the action sports culture has been a part of nearly my entire life. Being raised by my mother ,who had a natural eye for design, helped me to gain my appreciation for the arts. These two different focuses of my life have become my sources for inspiration to create the works I do. My mad obsession for sports including wake, surf, snow, kite, and skateboarding leaves me no other option but to submerse myself into this lifestyle entirely. All displayed slides include compilations of mixed media including borrowed images as well as personal works. All citing information is available upon -Resume -Home request..
