I was raised in a small town called Fredonia, AZ. There I got the chance to grow up around some of the most amazing country in the world including the Grand Canyon, Zions National Park, Bryce Canyon, and many other sights that photographers travel from all over the world to see. This is where I started to get interested in art. Through school I worked on my artistic talents and in high school I was asked to assist the art teacher in making examples for the other students. I also had my first art show in high school and that was the first time I sold art and began to make a name for myself. More recently I was accepted into the Academy of Art University.
