My Bio
I've been drawing since I figured out what side of the pencil made the marks and have been offering up my illustration skills to the highest bidder since my stint in New Milford High School (class of '93, holla!). I started off doing charity posters for Amnesty International (high bid = $0.00 and a cute girl in the Amnesty International clubs phone number) and album covers and t-shirts for friends' bands.

I continued freelancing through college at Colorado State University where I expanded my skills to include painting, printmaking, papermaking, sculpting and, in what was probably my best call in college, Adobe Photoshop.

From there I've been traveling all over the world and the one constant has been my freelancing. Comics, t-shirts, greeting cards, brochures, websites, webcomics, murals, logos, commissions and more, over the years I've done it all!
