****Note all artwork done in the last 8 months*****

I am a writer, illustrator, comic artist, conceptual designer, and graphic designer, working the Boston area. I grew up on 80's cartoons such as Transformers, GI Joe and He-Man. Around eight years old I began reading comic books staring DC's big three, and can still remember one of those issues. It was a Batman comic, written by Marv Wolfman and drawn by Todd MacFarlane and titled, "You should've seen him." That book still sits with me and is one of the reasons I do what I do.

As I got older and knew that art would be a life long passion if not a career, I decided to attend art school. In the fall of 1997 I started at New England School of Art and Design intending to be an illustrator. As the school and the design and art world were changing and illustration seemed to be becoming a thing of the past with the advent of photo shop, I was forced to change. I kept comic books and illustration as a thing in the background but as far as a career was concerned it was Graphic Design.

I made a good run at it as a Designer, I spent three years as and intern at two different places. one being a small design firm catering to big name clients and the other was a footwear designer with an international market. I graduated with my BFA and moved on to a job designing telephone book ads and helping with the layout of the telephone listing itself. That was good for two years and the boredom set in. This was also the time that I realized that illustration was changing and heading more towards digital and there maybe jobs out there. There maybe opportunities for self-publishing comic books.

I left the graphic design field, got a real job and started working on art. I spent time as a bus mechanic, a construction worker and a fork lift operator. All the while working on my own art that I was neglecting while working as a graphic designer.
