I'm a Portland native professional tattooist and filmmaker. Doing
my best to create positive change and hilarious videos. You can see

What I’m doing with my life
Trying to do everything, honestly. And also trying to do everything
with honesty. I am overly ambitious, but stubborn about trying to
change the world and having maximum artistic output.
I’m really good at
Nothing yet. Always room for improvement. Always striving to
That said, when I was 25 I was on a team that won an Emmy. Also,
pretty sure I'm creating wholly unique Celtic artwork.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on the weather. Either my beard (currently long and red) or
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Series, The Alchemist,
Narcissus and Goldmund, Harry Potter, The Book of Kells. Calvin and
Hobbes is extremely important to me. Movies: too many to list. I
love directors from Scorcese to Gilliam. I've been making films
since i was 11, when i discovered animation. A lot of movies are
tattooed onto me, like Blues Brothers, Big Lebowski, Wallace and
Gromit... TV Shows: Cosmos, Always Sunny in Philly, Broad City,
Workaholics, Walking Dead etc
The six things I could never do without
Art supplies, musical instruments, podcasts, Netflix, a camera,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The evolution of humanity, especially in regards to our intellect
and the effect of climate change on us.
Also, artistic productivity. Dalí and Da Vinci set a high standard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, then prepping for the next days tattoos. I take Monday and
Thursday off. I work very hard but it's fun and rewarding work,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I harbor ambitions for stand up comedy. (Update: I've gone up on
stage a few times now. It's fun. Connecting with people is a very
rewarding experience, either via tattooing or storytelling/comedy)
You should message me if
You're honest, kind, driven, adventurous, and liberal. Loving sweet
puppies a plus.
I believe in love.
It would be so lovely to share my life with another artist who
wants to leave a legacy.
