Where are you from originally?
I'm originally from Minneapolis, MN.
Where do you live now?
I am currently living in New York, NY
What first got you into art?
I guess art as a kid just never died for me. Art followed me through grade school, took me through college, and now I work as a Graphic Designer.
How would you describe your style?
I suppose Linework & Lettering
What inspires you? Have any artists in particular been an influence on you?
What isn’t inspiring? Inspiration kind of seems to be everywhere. I live in NYC which constantly gives you different things to look at day to day. It can be anything from a T-Shirt Graphic, a book cover on the train, store signage, etc. And if I'm not here I am usual traveling of some sort, which you can imagine also means new things to see and experience. I just trying and soak up as much as I can wherever I can.
What is your favorite medium?
Possibly trying new mediums. I always have my computer, paper and pens to fall back on, but I really enjoy exploring new mediums. I've never painted on a jacket before, guess we’ll see how it goes.
When did you first hear about Babes Ride Out?
I came across BRO5 on Instagram last year and gave it a follow.
What is your connection to the motorcycle community?
Just a rider, and a pretty new one at that. I started on dirtbike when I was younger but didnt get on the road until last year. Best decision ever.
Do you ride? If so, what do you ride?
I am currently on my friends Ninja 250. Nothing like getting on the highway and let that puppy scream (literally haha)
If you were a motorcycle what kind would you be?
I'm not 100% sure, but I have a soft spot for classics and another for enduros. So something that's fun to handle, but also able to keep up on some multi day moto camping trips.
Have you ever been to Joshua Tree? What was your experience there?
Sadly not yet, but its it's on the list.
What will you be contributing to this years raffle?
This year I will be contributing a Jacket.
