Born into a family of artists, I grew up in rural Saskatchewan. A childhood of drawing blossomed into an education in the Arts. After earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree I soon moved to Taiwan where I began getting tattooed by Taiwanese Master Diau-An. These tattoos (and this relationship) would ultimately inspire me to merge my love of the arts and my love of tattoos into one clear path.
Upon moving back to Canada, I sought an apprenticeship. It was Art Godoy at Funhouse Tattoos who opened that initial door into the world of tattooing. While working as "shop help" at Funhouse I met Jeremy Riley. He soon became my close friend and teacher.
In April of 2008 Jeremy opened Tattoo Union and I made the move with him. It has been nothing but a rewarding experience. The quiet atmosphere of our shop offers a great setting for custom tattooing. Ultimately we're concerned with creating the best possible tattoo for each individual. We are not a high volume shop as our focus is on quality rather than quantity.
