World traveler, Surfer. Featured on the Cover of The Surfer's Path
March/April 2006. Surfer's Journal interview, August 2005. I am influenced by Gustav Klimt and Pablo Picasso. I
admire Rembrant, and John Singer Sargent.
I have been traveling to Indonesia to surf and paint for about 7 years
and have been featured in magazines profiling my surfing and artistic
abilities. I currently live in South Carolina with my girlfriend,
I have had artshows in San Diego, most notably in The Hustler Bar
owned by pornographer, Larry Flindt.
I strive to create lasting images that transcend trends. I want to
perpetually travel the earth in search of perfect waves for surfing,
and beautiful subjects to immortalize in my paintings. When I push the
limits of my physical body, it releases my mind to relive incredible
moments of my life. As I stand and draw, these memories guide my hand
and I begin to groove and flow.
