I was born in El Paso, Texas in 1980 and moved to San Francisco in 1998. In 2002 I matriculated at the California College of the Arts. In 2003, I did a foreign exchange semester at the Ecole Superieur des Beaux Arts in Marseille, France. After graduating in 2005, I worked in the Emergency Department at California Pacific Medical Center from 2006 to 2007. I lived in Berlin from 2007 to 2009. I returned to the Emergency Department in 2009. In 2012 was awarded a full merit scholarship to pursue my graduate degree in painting and drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I graduated in 2014.
