In late 1989, I moved to Seattle, Washington, and started my printing company. Designing

for K2, Ride, Snowboard Connection and many snowboarding clothing companies…
After printing for 20 years in Seattle for over 500 bands and companies, I decided it was time to
make my own art for myself…
For the past 12 years of being a nomad around the world with a long stop in Bangkok for 7
