I graduated from Ball State University with a BFA in Fine Art in 2008 and started tattooing in early 2010 under the guidance of Craig Mathis of Lucky Rabbit Tattoo. In 2012 I moved to Bloomington Indiana and worked alongside Dave Herr and Shannon Simpson at Genuine Tattoo Company until early 2015 when I returned to Muncie and began working with Sean King at Black Sword Alliance Tattoo. It was here at Black Sword Alliance where I met my partner, fellow Tattooist, Samantha Leyes.
In early 2016 Sean King relocated to Oregon and sold the shop to myself and the rest of the crew at Black Sword Alliance making me co-owner of Muncie's favorite and finest tattoo shop. In 2018 I formed Muncie Tattoo LLC.
I actively make art outside of tattooing and show my work locally and regionally.
