I was born in Saigon, VN. My family and I came here when I was 13. Although I was always drawing when I was little, I did little to no drawing during my high school years (too many AP classes!!) and my college years. After graduating from University of CA, Los Angeles I attended the Art Institute for one year, learning basic drawing, perspective, anatomy, flash, and basic 3D Max modeling (I built a horrid low-polygon portrait of myself). I later left AI-LA because I wanted to go into Illustration, but the major wasn't offered. I also got married and moved to Northern CA, where I now reside, raising a small family and working as a freelance artist.
