Born in Michigan, I spent the better part of my adult life traveling across the globe adding to my craft and experiences. After a few years in Portland Oregon where I worked among some great tattoo talents, I decided it was time for more. I fell in love with Philadelphia and am now tattooing at the amazing Art Machine Productions.. but don’t fret! I am still doing guest spots around the United States and Europe!
I love to tattoo and have found my self lucky to call it my career and my passion. I love bold bright colors and stylized realism. Organic and botanical is where I got my start in art, but I find myself loving to tattoo almost anything with multiple images together to create a story. I love history and antiques, and am terrified of sharks. I also excel in bringing together your most extensive Internet searches, to a great cohesive personal tattoo. I’m pretty damn sweet to boot.
I am currently booked into 2013 and have stopped taking new clients. I am referring everyone to the other artists here at Art Machine. For more information, please refer to my website.
I also want to thank everyone for their continued support. I am eternally grateful.

Cover ups, new school, black and grey, traditional, portraits, realism, biomechanical
I started tattooing in 1998 in a small town in South Jersey. I did an old fashioned apprenticeship, with plenty of solder fumes, bleach stained pants, and clown costumes.
One thing I was taught early on was that you should be able to do any tattoo that walks in the door. Because of this, I consider myself a very well rounded artist. I can shift from style to style based on client preference. My preferred style is new school; however, I feel equally comfortable with traditional, realism, portraiture, black and grey, biomechanical, and above all else, cover ups. My love for cover ups is based on the very things that most artists find most frustrating about them. They are challenging, unpredictable, and often can’t be planned for in the same way you would with any other tattoo.
Every step in my career has been part of a much larger picture, and has led me to open my own studio. Art Machine Productions is located in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. It is a 2700sf gallery and tattoo studio, with lots of open space and high ceilings. The decor is relaxed, very zen, and inspired by the dichotomy of modern industrial and Eastern religion.
When I’m not in the studio, I can normally be found in the kitchen or the backyard, hanging out with my family or pets, and making various items of pure deliciousness.
