Phot by Ben Grillo


I grew up in Vista, where I still live with my husband Chad, our son Mack, two dogs, Baxter and Charlie, and a cat named Kiki.

I am a graduate of Cal State San Marcos with a

BA in Literature and Writing.

Tattooing since 2005, I learned the trade from Sam Phillips and have been working alongside my mentor for the entirety of my career at American Tattoo. I specialize in custom design work and enjoy doing American Traditional, portraiture, lettering and floral themed tattoos.


Since 2014, I have been creating large scale murals and facilitating public art in the North County community. I am a designer, social media maven, writer, editor, organizer, co-conspirator, and accomplice.

I am the president and founder of The Backfence Society, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to community through art in downtown Vista. It’s program Only Losers Litter hosts a monthly TRASHWALK where participants wear capes and turn into community crusaders by

cleaning up litter.
