Born and raised in Austin, I am considered one of the local unicorns. I've always been creative, but didn't really start to develop it until high school. I was a CAD drafter and CAM programmer working in the acoustic instrument manufacturing industry for over 10 years before I discovered face painting. I have a passion for travel, and especially enjoy attending face painting conventions where I have become a part of a worldwide community of artists. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have three boys,
who don't really like face painting.
