About the Artist

I was born and raised in Aurora, CO and had an amazing childhood with an even more wonderful family. My mom - Cindy - and dad - Mike - have always been, and will always continue to be my heroes. I have a younger brother who is the most authentic and creative soul I know. My closest friend is my wife Mada, who is the greatest person I have ever known. She is the most important person in my life and the source of my inspiration.

I graduated from Smoky Hill High School in 2009 and attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where I earned my bachelors degree in History. My dream had always been to become a teacher. Still, to this day, I believe it is the greatest choice I have ever made. After college I attended the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver where I earned my Masters in Education, and certification in Special Education and Culturally and Linguistically Diverse teaching.

For the first 3 years of my career I worked in a Denver Public Schools charter called STRIVE Prep Westwood. It was here where I met my wife. The past four years I have spent teaching at DSST Cole Middle School as a 7th grade Social Studies and Reading teacher. These seven years have been the best years of my life. Working with kids in the city I love: coaching them, teaching them, and watching them grown into the people they were meant to become.

Because teaching has been so important to me and the largest part of my identity, selling art has always played second fiddle, despite it being something that is so near and dear to my heart. I have always tried to include art in my teaching, running the art club for three years at Cole and painting dozens of murals around our building with my students. My personal goal is to share my art with the rest of the world outside the confines of my own home and school community. This is the reason for my entrance into the Artwork Network, to share my art with the world.

Hopefully you love my art as much as I do.
