Fun facts: I’m an avid Illustrator who often has a pen and pencil in hand. I’m a high adrenaline sports fan, from surfing to skateboarding, snowboarding, skydiving, rock climbing, hardcore hiking. Anything that gets my blood pumping. I love working for projects that empower people that are in need. I come from a humble family and wouldn’t be here without the help from strangers. I’m now in the position to be that stranger, and to take every extra project I can fit in my schedule.
