I was born in Zimbabwe, Africa in 1981 and grew up in Las Cruces, NM. I graduated with a degree in Acting, and after college, worked as an actor and musician for the Santa Fe Shakespeare Festival, the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, and the California Shakespeare Theater. Throughout this, I was always doing artwork, and have since moved into doing artwork, design, and fabrication full-time.
