I currently live and work in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina after moving from Wilmington, North Carolina in 1999. The son of a textile / interior designer, I always had a strong interest in art and design. I began group art classes at the age of seven including drawing and oil painting, which I attribute to learning the basic skills of a fine artist. Drawing and painting landscapes and still life’s, really bored my mind and soul. I continued to focus on the fundamentals of fine art throughout my formative years. Upon the completion of high school, I went on to play college baseball and study fine art, graphic design, photography, illustration and creative writing, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications from Mount Olive University. I played baseball my first year in college and figured out that you cannot focus on any one thing well if you have to focus on class, art studio time, baseball practice, study hall and more. This is when I decided to focus on my career in art and design. I am currently working on many different projects, but my main focus is always producing art and design which tells a story.
