All About Me

I’ve been tattooing for 25 years.
I apprenticed shortly after I graduated S.U.N.Y Purchase with a BFA in Sculpture & Design in 1991.
Although I reside in Maryland now, I am originally from New York, and spent the first half of my career
working in a busy street shop in Montclair, New Jersey for Diane Farris at Powerhouse Tattoo.
The shop was extremely small and extremely popular~ buzzing with walk-ins all day and night.
It was there that I learned old school ethics and how to be strong and self reliant
in a fast paced cramped environment without a counter-person. Diane was an
apprentice of the famous tattooer, Spider Webb, and because of her,
I was able to meet (and get tattooed by) many of the historical figures of the NY Tattoo industry
Tony Polito, Philadelphia Eddie, and the list goes on.
Thanks Diane!
 
I spent 11 years working with Vinnie Myers and a rotating crew
at Little Vinnie’s Tattoos in Finksburg including tattoo legends such as Dave Waugh and Aaron Cain.
Now, in 2017, another chapter in my “Tattoo Playbook” has opened…
Come see me at Westminster Tattoo Company in Westminster, Md
where I am a proud co-owner along with my beloved client & friend, Kristen Brooks.
I work mainly by appointment, but I will take walk ins when I’m able to do so.
I apply a traditional mindset to modern techniques
and thanks to a loyal clientele, I stay very busy with lots of custom
work and ongoing projects. I do my best to ensure that every tattoo is a
unique experience in order to tempt you into coming back for more.
My other interests are: sell vintage clothing online, design jewelry,  and occasionally an illustration commission.
My preferred style is retro vintage with a modern twist.
