In 2007, with the help of “Art Access” I was set up with Trent Call for their “Partners Program” which set me on a path to rediscover myself through my artwork. In 2011, I was lucky enough to be asked by Salt Lake City Weekly to design an art box to house their weekly publication.
I have also been fortunate enough to be an invited artist at the Utah Arts Festival, which has given me the change to team up with some of the most talented people in Salt Lake City, including the multi-talented and lovely, Chauncey Hildebrandt.
My art is ever evolving and I am proud to be a member of the art community in Utah.
I have an amazing studio at the SLC Art Hub located at 663 W 100 S Salt Lake City, Utah.

By no means do I consider myself a professional photographer, but I do carry a passion for photography including landscapes and inanimate objects. I am someone that will wake up at the crack of dawn to capture a beautiful lake shot in Oregon or hike the icy mountains of Glacier National Park just to capture the beauty for others.
I love to shoot vintage automobiles. My first cars was a 1952 Chevy truck that I fully restored and keep in my heart. People had been a harder subject for me to embrace, but I worked at it and believe that I have found my voice with the help of others. Any and everything in my art I shoot myself.

In 1998, I received my certificate in Graphic Design & Illustration from Fullerton College in California. From there, I worked at some firms in Orange County California and Utah. I am currently a freelance Graphic Designer working to create everything (business identities, logos, business cards, page layouts, custom announcements, some website work and branding). I am a firm believer in listening to my clients’ needs and ideas. With my experience, I have the ability to come up with several different options for my client to choose from.
I also have an extensive background in Printing; I know how to set up files properly for the printing side of things. I am well versed in Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and Muse.
I enjoy making timelapse videos of me working on art. I think it is a fun process to peek into the world of an artist.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Graduated from Fullerton College with a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. I have overcome many obstacles in life including dyslexia.
I enjoy working as a full-time graphic designer and currently resides in northern Utah where he enjoys all that Utah has to offer. I'am a man of many talents: painter, illustrator, photographer, clothing designer, metal sculptor, restorer of vintage cars, BMX super star and grandiose mustache wearer.
