Great Frame Up
(430 Main St. Longmont)
Born in 1973 in Seattle, Washington. The youngest in a family of 5. He grew up in the shadow of others with a doodling obsession and an imagination daily fueled. At the early age of 18 he recognized his calling to be a ‘communicator’ – be it through his pen, his drawing or his voice. With this he set out to use his talent and give what he had to the world. Today he continues to create stories, tell stories and bring them to life through illustration. Touching hearts, stirring hearts and challenging the status quo of thought and action.

He’s married and has three children. They travel extensively and seem to find adventure at every turn. Still fueling the imagination …and that of his kids.
