San Diegan born + raised. I specialize in retail design + installation art. Each piece is hand crafted with precision + attention to detail here in San Diego.
My influence comes from the ultimate Creator. He did everything best, first. Every piece of wood has its own character; flaws + perfections, details + personality. It’s my passion to bring that to life through art + fine woodworking. I love to capture the colors, patterns + textures of natural materials and combine them in a way that is inspiring.
After 5 years in the Marine Corps, I spent time in business school and couldn’t shake the feeling that I was meant to do more. I quit my job and started drawing. Not long after, a few friends and I developed an art collaborative where I became the lead designer. I spent a few years as the Display Artist at Urban Outfitters and decided it was time for an adventure. Brave Aesthetics is a simple dream. It takes bravery to do what you love. It takes bravery to be vulnerable through your art.
The future is made by the hands of the brave.
If you have a question, want to talk inspiration or have a project idea, I’d love to talk to you.
