I started tattooing in the year 2000 in Mobile, Alabama under Tom Smith and Chip Baskin. After that I spent about a year in Florida working with Chip.
From there, I traveled to Denver, Colorado and worked with Barb Sutton of Mile Hi Tattoo. I also met and worked with the good people of Guilt by Association.
Somewhere around 2006 I moved to New York to work with my friend Jason Sexton who owns Golden Lotus NY.
That winter I heard about an opening at Prix in Pasadena and decided to check out sunny California where I immediately fell in love.
Prix has two great shops and I like to work in both of them as much as I can.
