Green Birthmarks


I'm a Minneapolis artist that works in drawing and painting, currently part of TC artist collaborative Dim Media and have created everything from comics to murals to fine art pieces. View my portfolio or checkout some of my art related articles.


Developing websites for 17 years, I have a few languages and a ton of experience under my belt. I'm currently doing a lot of Google Appengine and ReactJS development. Take a look at some of my software projects or read my programming articles.

Above is a pic from the Trentemoller show last week at Fineline.
