I was born and raised in Southern California. I grew up in the City of Orange, practically in the shadow of the Matterhorn from that famous theme park down the freeway. I feel like I practically grew up at the Disneyland Resort. I have always been glued to pop culture, but not knowing that it was something I would celebrate later in life. Being an only child, Smurfs, Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, He-Man, Transformers, and Han Solo were pretty much who I hung out with on a daily basis. I was the kid with the plastic Ewok Village, playing in the weeds in the backyard. Fast forward to when I got older and more ''serious'' about my art, I started seeing other artists out there take these types of things we grew up with and turn them into art -- it blew my mind. I knew this kind of modern nostalgia pop surrealism was for me. In 1995 when I was about to graduate from El Modena High School, I got a job in the Parade Department at Disneyland. Eleven years later, I finally transferred into what was a dream job, as an Art Specialist for Disney Creative Entertainment. After being with the Walt Disney Company for 17 year, I decided it was time to step outside my comfort zone and accept another dream job art position with the University of Southern California. I currently work as the Director of the USC Design Studio. I learned a lot of techniques from Cal State Fullerton's Art Department where I graduated in 2004. I learned what I liked and more importantly, what I didn't like about painting. I then decided to simply paint what I enjoy. Over the years in my spare time, I have been a part of numerous group shows in Orange County and Los Angeles, even some on the East Coast. The more group shows I am a part of, the more it inspires me to keep painting and keep looking for that next great idea to put on canvas. Being a part of an art gallery with Disney makes me feel like I've come full circle and it's a dream come true. It's a privilege to have my art featured in the fabulous WonderGround Gallery.
