I have spent most of my life in Southern California with deep roots in skate, surf, art, and youth culture.  As a Creative Professional specializing in the Action Sports and Outdoor Lifestyle industry, those influences have shaped my art and my career.

 

After graduating from California State University-Long Beach, I started work at Quiksilver, then Hurley, then Volcom Inc, where I developed a unique knowledge of youth culture, the skate and surf industry, and apparel marketing.  I quickly became a lead contributor and mentor to up and coming artists.  As Art Director at The Integer Group, a global ad agency, I took a lead role, concepting ideas and coordinating their development with copywriters, account management and production teams to produce print, digital, and media marketing materials.

 

I am a quick problem solver and obsessive about the work I create.

I am a proven leader in the workplace and in various volunteer

organizations.  I am dedicated to my family and giving back to

my community as a youth mentor.
