I am an independent illustrator, graphic artist, 3D artist, web developer and all around geek. 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 and with 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 web comic for ModernTales in 2003. Later that year I started WirePop, an online comic subscription site.
Now, currently residing in Florida and armed with my trusty computer, Wacom Cintiq, iPad and digital camera, I’m continuing to venture and expand into my love of creating artwork and making plans for my next project.
