I have always loved art and never stopped creating.
In 2000, I had the opportunity to begin studying art more seriously at a college preparatory art magnet program high school. I went on to graduate from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2006 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration, along with my wife, Tina Poe.
In college, I worked as a freelance storyboard artist, and was an interactive art director at an advertising agency for a few years after graduating, before going back to illustrating and being a storyboard artist from 2009 to 2012.
Looking for a way to connect my art with people directly, I apprenticed at The Inkery tattoo studio in downtown Austin, and knew that tattooing was going to be my life. After tattooing at the Inkery for almost 3 years, I moved to Golden Age Tattoo in south Austin in 2015 to continue my tattoo career.
Tina and I run Serpentine Visions, an art gallery shop online and at various local events where we showcase and sell original fine art.
