About Me

CURRENT MISSION

SWIM SWIM SWIM

ABOUT ME

I'm very active. My father gave me a skateboard when I was 3 years old and I skated till I was 22. Now I hike and swim whenever possible and sit in hot springs when it is too cold to swim.

I am an artist and make work on my 9 to 5. I also document my hiking and swimming activities through photographs and video on my weekly web blog. Check it out at LosAngelesSwimmin.com

I also do a comic about the absurdity of everyday life at ThePube.com

I would like to finish Grad school but I cannot afford it at this point in my life. I plan on applying to free or cheap schools for 2013. I ultimately want to teach Fine Art at the Collegiate level. So as of now I will continue to make work, hike/swim, jump off cliffs and go on as many road trips as possible.
