I have been tattooing since 2004. I started tattooing at 454 Tattoo in Encinitas, CA, once called Beachin’ Tattoo, under Billy Barnett. After a 2 year apprenticeship, I moved to Atlanta, GA. where I worked with Russ Abbott in Decatur. Currently, I am working at Memorial Tattoo with the amazing Phil Colvin and crew. I have been at the Moreland Ave. location since 2008.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. After graduating from high school, with honors, I pursued a degree in Graphic Design and graduated, with honors, from San Diego State University in 2003. Upon graduation, I moved back to Hawaii, where I was born, to enjoy life. Six months later, I moved back to San Diego and pursued a tattoo apprenticeship and have been tattooing ever since.
I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy tattooing!
