Bio

I started my art training right around high school. I had been exposed to many comic books and cartoons at an early age and desired to recreate the wonderful images created by artists such as Jack Kirby, John Buscema, Jim Lee, Bernie Wrightson, Todd McFarlane, Tex Avery, just to name a few. Movies also played a large role in my art developement. I fell in love with classic Godzilla films and the great stop motion artistry of Ray Harryhausen. These films spawned my interest in becoming a creature, concept and storyboard artist.

I attended Kean University and received my bachelor of fine arts degree and tried my hand at being a caricature artist for several Florida theme parks. After years of baking in the Florida sun I decided to return to my passion and desire of becoming a storyboard/ concept artist. Realizing the art field was now digital I attended the Digital Arts & Visual Effects School and learned animation, compositing and Visual effects. Upon graduating I am seeking to fulfill my life long pursuit of doing storyboards, concept art, matte paintings and visual effects for the feature film, television and or gaming industry.
