Current position/responsibilities: Owner and artist at Oakwood Tattoo
What do you like best about what you do? I have the ability to create art and change people’s lives and commemorate memories for their lifetime. I also travel to tattoo in other cities and countries.
What do you like best about working or living in the community? Decatur is for amazing. When we host an event, the entire community steps up to help out.
What should the community be doing to attract more young people to live and work in the Decatur area? I think it would be great to see more places and activities geared toward our teenagers. I feel we have a lack of places with positive influence for that age group.
Who is the person who has had the biggest influence on you and why? My father was my biggest influence. He instilled a solid work ethic in me when I was young. He told me to work so hard that you don’t have to introduce yourself.
