I am an award winning airbrush artist/designer from the Dallas area. I can create art in almost any medium, and I enjoy mixed media pieces as well. I have done lettering, logos, and color work for a couple of independent comic publishers. I also have created, marketed, and launched four independent clothing lines for online use. For the past three years I have worked as in-house designer for Live Nation Motorsports, creating live event merchandise for Monster Jam, Nickeldodeon, Dew Action Sports, and several more. I have an extremely fast turnaround time, and I am accustomed to working under pressure and deadlines. I am always open to new ventures and can always be reached immediately through email. Thank you very much for visiting my portfolio, I look forward to hearing from you!
Biography: I am originally from the Dallas Fort Worth area, and have lived here all my life. My artwork spawned at a very young age, and developed into a career when I was still in high school. During that time, I was a member of the National Art Honor Society and contributed several works over three years that were nationally recognized. I started working in the real estate industry doing elevation drawings and brochures/flyers for Prudential when I was a sophomore in high school. I continued that, along with mural painting throughout high school. After high school, I decided to make the transition to professional tattooing. In 1999, I started my apprenticeship at a tattoo studio in Arlington, which lasted approximately a year and a half. Afterwards, I began tattooing professionally for the same studio. In May of 2000, myself and the other employees of this studio branched out to open our own studio, 360 Blues & Tattoos. From there, I built a broad clientele and started tattooing on the convention circuit. I was a resident artist at the annual Texas Tattoo Roundup for four years, after which I reverted back to the studio we built in order to satisyfy my clientele's needs. I continued at this studio, eventually becoming the manager of a staff of six artists, overseeing the inner workings of the studio until May of 2004. In 2004 I decided my time would be better spent at home with my family, and I began to pursue a career in digital art. It was July 2004 when I started as a production artist for Berman Enterprises, Inc. (a sports advertising agency). After about a month, I was promoted to Creative Director and put in charge of the marketing, promotion, and execution of four independent clothing lines. I launched these clothing lines online in January of 2005, to a merket that received it very well. Since then, I have been freelancing in addition to my current job (tattooing/painting), with the goal of eventually being on a freelance basis for all of my artwork. I have been working with an independent comic publisher out of Chicago, and I will also be touring the US this year painting for the Tuaca Body Art Ball. I am still looking for any creative opportunities, and I look forward to expanding my horizons to include every medium.
