Born and raised in San Pedro, California, I was introduced to skateboarding as soon as my older brother and dad could get me on a board. Some kids had baseball cards, we had old Powell and Santa Cruz decks to collect.
Growing up around all the beautiful skateboard deck artwork in the eighties and having a father that frequented the Pomona swap meet exposed me to a bubbling cauldron of good visual references. I was accepted to Art Center College of Design with nothing more than my life drawings and a notebook filled with cartooned skate, surf and hot rod graphics. Jumping in to the action sports world out of school would have been a no-brainer but I actually got hooked in the the grocery world, bringing that same weirdo vibe to packaging and marketing collateral for Trader Joe's and Imperfect Foods.
