I was raised in the sunny coastal city of Long Beach, CA, where I explored a myriad of art disciplines, delightful cuisines, and many colorful neighborhoods. I am currently residing in Grand Rapids, MI, where I fell in love with the local arts community, the changing seasons, and the people I’ve grown to care for. In August 2019 I obtained my bachelor's degree in Metalsmithing and Jewelry with a minor in Sculpture & Functional Art at Kendall College of Art and Design, where I developed a deeper love for learning new mediums as forms of expression. Thus far my favorites are metalsmithing, illustration, printmaking, and small sculpture. 

I'm a multidisciplinary artist and self-proclaimed polymath passionate about exploring the depths of my subconscious. Much of my inspiration derives from literature, old or odd films, myths, and the dystopian future that looms in the not-so-far horizon. Some of my favorite artists to date are Deth P Sun, Guillermo Del Toro, Iris Van Herpen, Mike Mignolia, and Jeffrey Alan Love. A touch of the weird and wild runs through my work.
