I originally apprenticed in Edmonton Alberta in 2008 at Atomic Zombie under Scott Campbell, Matt Cottell, Patrick Berube, Keeth Cherrington, Kat Hayes, Bradley Gobeil, Marshall Khalil, Marina Storme, Karl Sundquist, Severino Estevez and numerous other talented artists. I took a break from pursuing tattooing to gain some life perspective and discover more about myself. I spent a number of years in Australia, delivering Government funded programs to remote Indigenous Families across the Northern Territory, until the Government kicked me out! (nicely-ish) 2019 was an extremely traumatic year for me personally, it was one of the darkest years of my life, which was exactly what I needed to propel me into building a life for myself that was both fulfilling and nurturing.
I returned to Canada in March of 2020, when the world went into lock down and got in touch with some of my connections within the industry. Connor Garritty - owner of Timeless Tattoos in Hollywood California introduced me to the world of the IPAD, and showed me the basics of using digital art to streamline the tattoo design process. At this stage I reached out to Patrick Berube – owner of Beacon Tattoo Co. in Port Hardy and a few short weeks later I was all settled in to move through the remainder of my apprenticeship under his eye! Early 2021 I made my way back down island to work with Wade Woods – Owner of Let it Bleed Tattoos & Piercings I continue to be mentored by Connor, Wade and Pat. I believe that as artists we should never stop learning from each other to ensure continual development.
