I was born in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was an artist since I can remember. I have been drawing every single day of my life sine I was four years old. In fact, my entire family was very artistic. My father drew a lot as a young man and was involved in photography. My mother was a Tahitian Dancer, and she was also extremely good with crafts. My siblings also loved to draw, and we would routinely draw together. My brother and I where basically the poorest kids in our neighborhood. Not to say that we lived in poverty, but we certainly had a lot of hard times growing up. It was a release to make fun of those things growing up. I always enjoyed art though, beyond making funny pictures, it has always been how I saw myself.
