I grew up in Santa Barbara surfing, skating, and cycling. I dropped out of high school after 2 hours on my first day and never went back. I spent all of my time from 13-21 doing graffiti and doing photography. I have no formal training or education in art. But after spending a month in Europe in late 2016 and visiting museums and galleries I decided to try painting and that's where my focus has been since January 2017.
