I was born and currently reside in San Francisco, and spend most of my time painting & drawing. At the age of three, we moved to Chicago and lived there for seven years before moving back to San Francisco. Since the age of six, I had an interest in artwork, especially science fiction related artwork. During most of my early childhood, I played “pretend” with my brothers and friends from the neighborhood, which involves aliens and their civilizations. I would continue to do so till around the age of 13, while continuing to draw fictional scenes. During high school, I enrolled in a major of fine arts. And in 2012, I graduated from high school and enrolled into California College of the Arts.
