I'm 27 years old, and I'm from Endeavor, WI. I started my career as an artist at the age of 18. I apprenticed as a traditional sign painter at L'Sign Co. in Portage, WI under the direction of Gary Leamons for four years. Soon after, I moved to north east Minneapolis to become a graphic artist at Miska designs. I moved back to Wisconsin and became an art director/production manager for Design 1 Apparel, where I still am today. Along with being an artist/tradesman, I also enjoy playing banjo, guitar, violin, mandolin and bass (you can check out some of my guitar work at myspace.com/audiootic ). I hope to someday become a book illustrator, and record a solo album.
