I’ve been painting and drawing since I was a kid. Grew up poor but my mom gave me everything she could. In high school I started drawing up tattoo designs for friends and eventually made friends with a shop owner in Mission Beach, CA. That is where I got my foot in the door. I’ve been in the industry since I was 19 and never looked back. After working in a lot of shops, I took all of the positive experiences and lessons I learned and poured them into Bad Apple. I love my crew and always respect my craft and what it has given me.

Born and raised on the rough streets of San Diego (right near da beach BOYEEE!!!)
