I am an independent illustrator, comic artist, graphic artist, 3D artist, and web developer. Basically, I like to make things! Originally from New Jersey, I grew up on classic 1980s cartoons and superhero comics. Some of my earliest memories are drawing cartoon characters on a little sketchpad—the start of a long-term passion for creating new worlds and characters.

My first computer was an Amiga 500. With the Amiga and Deluxe Paint I began my venture into computer graphics. Ever eager to learn new things, as a teen I explored new creative avenues such as print and design, coding my own websites, and 3D modeling and animation. I continued to expand my creative toolset even more during high school by taking classes in photography, video production, and computer graphics. With aspirations to make a career in 3D animation, I attended Full Sail University and graduated with an Associates Degree in multimedia.

Afterwards, however, I spent several years working professionally in print and web development for companies such as Nike, AAA, Visa, Universal, Ping Zine, and numerous others. I produced my first webcomic for ModernTales in 2003. Later that year I started WirePop—an online comic subscription site.

In my spare time I kill many hours, and monsters, in MMORPGs and games, watch anime, read comics, take pictures, and collect figures and ball-jointed dolls.

Now currently residing in Florida, and armed with my trusty computer and Wacom Cintiq, I continue to pursue my creative dreams. I’m currently working on my online graphic novel, DARKBORN. When I’m not being creative I spend too much time playing games, typically MMORPGs—one of my long-time addictions.
