About me

I'm originally from Los Angeles where I learned & experienced a whole lot in many creative fields. My first real world job was in music promotion working for record labels like Delicious Vinyl, EMI, and Capital Records. A few years later I would learn about screen printing and started working at a silk screening company printing t-shirts day & night. Once I learned what can be done with screen printing I started making t-shirts for my friends & myself just for fun. Those fun times lead me into starting my own clothing line & I entered the strange world of fashion by accident. I ran my clothing line all on my own for six years then transitioned into screen printing for a wide variety of clientele like Dim Mak, Sportie LA, Ganja Sufi, Kova & T, Dime Piece, MGM, Warner Bros. Music, URB Magazine, and Filter Magazine. My next job would be designing custom graphics and art for an automotive accessory company with a laser machine and once it was time to move on I began working for a high end art gallery where I was able to handle art & brush up on my art history. That would be my last gig in Los Angeles before I moved to Tokyo to pursue my dream to live abroad and learn how to survive as an artist in a foreign land. I love living here and wish to continue to learn and expand my creative circle.
