As a kid I only had two interests, drawing and martial arts. Apparently I haven’t changed much because those are still my only interests! While attending art school in the late 80s I completed my tattoo apprenticeship and tattooed part time while studying fine art drawing. When I left school, I opened my own shop for a couple of years but eventually wanted to get some experience working with other artists.
I traveled and tattooed for a few years, both nationally and internationally, until I ended up settling in at Tattoos by Lou in Miami. My good friend and mentor, Ken Cameron, made me the manager of his shop and I stayed there for 18 years. I moved back to Green Bay to be closer to my family and was lucky enough to have the guys at Artrageous Ink invite me to work with them. I’m currently teaching Gracie Jiu Jitsu full-time while tattooing by appointment.
