I'm 34 years young, a Cancer. I was born in Seattle, Washington, the emerald city of the evergreen state. I'm a handsome Native American from the Siksika nation (Blackfoot Tribe) located in Alberta, Canada. I was raised in Seattle until the age of 16, then moved to a little town named Vernal in North Eastern Utah.


The country was a major culture shock, given that at that point, I was domesticated as a city slicker. I attended college at UBATC (Untah Basm Applied Technology College) for autoCAD drafting and auto mechanics. I had a career as a "roughneck" drilling for oil on a rig. I have over 3000 hours as a tattoo artist.


My passion has been art-based for as long as I can remember. I've been blessed with the ability to excel in art effortlessly, but I still have a lot to learn. I enjoy drawing portraits and realistic and cultural art. I used to be a B-Boy (break dancer) for over 10 years when I was younger, and graffiti was one of the four elements of hip-hop, so I have a history of tagging. I'm currently learning to draw human anatomy and sharpening my skills in drawing with ink. In my off time, I indulge in reading art books to help me be a better artist while gaining a perspective from different artists.


One day, I want to publish my own instructional art book because what might work for one might not work for others, and I might have tips for what they are looking for. I take being healthy seriously, so lifting weights is a major part of my life. I'm very athletic, and I train in boxing and do yoga. I love to laugh; I have a really good sense of humor.


I like watching comedies, listening to jokes, and telling funny stories. I take pride in making people smile because, given the circumstances, being negative doesn't really help my situation. I read many self-help books, philosophy, psychology, and history, along with a little fantasy as a nightcap.
