About The Artist:
I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley just outside of Los Angeles and was immersed in the the hot rod and car culture southern California. As long as I can remember I was working on cars with my father and I always looked forward to the early Sunday mornings scrounging the local swap meets for cars and parts. At 16 I bought my 1967 Chevelle. My high school and early college years were filled with late nights with good friends building cars, street racing, drag racing and meeting some of the most influential people in the car culture. After high school I began city college and my efforts to become a car designer.
In 1998 I was accepted to Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Ca. and graduated in 2002 with a degree in automotive design. In school I designed new cars, so in my free time I began freelance design and rendering of hot rods, customs and muscle cars. The great people I had met in the car community got me started drawing their personal cars and soon I was doing work for Hot Rod, Car Craft, Super Chevy and several other magazines. Magazine work led to work for major custom shops and SEMA show cars.
My career has taken a turn, as I now work in the motorcycle industry as a designer, so my car renderings allow me to continue my passion.
