I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. I grew up with a father who loved to play blues guitar and a mother who loved art. My grandmother curated many galleries in Hawaii in the 80s. I remember hanging out at the galleries with her at a very young age and was always inspired and influenced by the art that was all around.
After high school I traveled to Europe whereI was heavily inspired by the art and culture from places like Italy, Spain, Amsterdam, France and Switzerland. After returning I enrolled at FullSail University in Florida and graduated with a degree in media engineering. I began working in professional multimedia from this point and developed a strong skill-set in multimedia art and design. As a multimedia artist I truly love all aspects of creation whether it’s video, photography, graphic design, or painting. I truly love abstract-contemporary fine art which has become my favorite style of painting.
My art and photography have been released and used in print worldwide and my paintings have shown in galleries from Hawaii to Florida.
I am currently the Art Director at Bluewater Creative Group and the Art Gallery of Viera. I reside in Melbourne, Florida with my beautiful wife Katie and our three wonderful boys Bodhi, Bentley and Beau.
