Wooster: Who and/or what are some of your influences?

My dad is an amazing artist and influenced me tons. when I was a kid i was into comic books, skateboard graphics,  mad magazine stuff like that. I also spent tons of time in the art section at the library getting inspired by the masters. My biggest artistic influences are people that i have spent time painting with. I have learned so much watching people like Other, Broke, Produkt, Evoke, Hv8weight, Thesis and Gawd paint .

Wooster: What other artists do you most admire?

There are so many, i am really inspired by the massive murals people are doing these days. I really want to do some building sized pieces that must be so fun. My favorite thing to do is to wander around cities and train yards and see what i find. i like to be surprised, train yards are the best for seeing art from everywhere on the continent.

Wooster: How would you describe your art to someone who could not see it?

I would get them to listen to some my favorite records and read some kurt Vonnegut books.

Wooster: What other talent would most like to have?

I wish i was better at selling my self so i could travel more and do massive murals.

Wooster: What do you fear the most?

getting old and losing the use of my body

Wooster: What is your greatest ambition?

To be happy and keep making lots of art.
