I graduated cum laude and class valedictorian from the Academy of Art, University with a Bachelor's in Fine Art Degree in Illustration. I'm also an alumnus of the legendary, Kubert School of Graphic Art, in Dover, NJ where I studied from 2009-2010.
I'm the founder/owner of a boutique t-shirt company called Cotton Crustacean based in Pacifica, CA; featuring my scientific illustrations of prehistoric marine life, printed on premium tees. Visit us at www.cottoncrustacean.com!
I'm also a part-time illustration instructor at my alma mater, the Academy of Art, University in SF, and an Artist-in-Residence at a public high-school, the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts, where I teach graphic design in the Architecture and Design department. And along with all of the above, I manage to hold down a day job as a Branding Consultant for TOHO International, the Los Angeles based office of the legendary Japanese movie production company, TOHO STUDIOS (Toho Co., Ltd.) where I oversee and approve all Godzilla related merchandise.
When not drawing, I play bass and sing in the JAWS themed, synth-sludge band, SQUALUS, and was the frontman for the doom-rock band, GIANT SQUID. Both can be found at (thissongisaboutsharks.net)
Current Residence: Sharp Park, Pacifica, CA
