I apprenticed for two years in Nome, Alaska under “Alaska” Mike Sulton (former owner of Good Karma Tattoo Fairbanks, AK.) Starting in 1990 and finishing in late 1991.
I opened Tundra Tattoo in Nome at that time and in 1993 moved it to Wasilla AK. Tundra Tattoo closed in Oct of 94 and I moved to Seattle WA. There I freelanced until I opened Lynnwood Tattoo in Lynnwood, WA. in Feb. of 1995.
In 1997 I opened Greenlake Tattoo on Aurora Ave in Seattle WA.
In 1998 Ultimate Body Piercing and Tattoo in Anchorage AK and The Tattoo Cellar in Sturgis SD were opened.
Ultimate Tattoo was sold in 1999 and Greeenlake Tattoo was closed in 2000.
From 1997 until 2004 Lynnwood Tattoo was represented at The Ink Slingers Ball in Hollywood CA. by various artists.
From 1993 until 2006 I tattooed at The Alky Angel Labor Daze Bike Run in Bellingham WA.
2007 I sold Lynnwood Tattoo and moved to Sturgis to open The Tattoo Cellar full time.
I was a Member of The Association of Professional Piercers from 1995 to 2007
I am a member of The Alliance of Professional Tattooists from 1994 to present.
