Biography


BACKGROUND
Although born in Fort Lee, VA, I got to Texas as soon as possible. I grew up in Corpus Christi, TX through 9th grade, then moved to Portland, TX across the bay where I finished high school at Gregory-Portland High School. Much of my childhood was spent on an Etch-A-Sketch. I loved Marvel superheroes, so I spent most of my time drawing from those comic books. I also drew from the occasional Disney coloring book. My first commissioned art job for Halliburton when I was in junior high. In the years after that job, I spent a lot of time in junior high, high school and college creating acrylic paintings of the oil & gas industry. Thus, I didn’t have to mow lawns during the summer for spending money. LOL
