In 2004 I started learning to tattoo under Karen Brandt. I worked there for a few years and tattooed as much as I could. After a while I figured out that I can travel through the states working at various shops and conventions. Which helped me as an artist grow faster. I’ve been good friends with Ashton Anderson for a long time and he had been inviting me to guest spot at Memorial Tattoo. I was there tattooing and Phil asked if I wanted to become one of the resident staff. I jumped on the opportunity. I’ve looked up to Phil for a long time, and there’s no better person I’d want to call my boss. It’s an honor to work here with the whole crew.
