I am an illustrator; a comic artist, a storyteller. My illustration captures the coarse, gritty and underground nature of the surf/ skate/ punk subculture. I rely on the appearance of my line-work and limited palette to capture both the complexity and simplicity of this venue. Ever since a young age, it has been second nature to me to illustrate what I know best — myself. Growing up in suburban New Jersey one could venture to say that I was born on the wrong coast. With a love for surfing and skateboarding so deeply rooted in a California lifestyle, these environments and characters I create, I live vicariously through.
