I can still remember when I was six years old, how much my parents were fascinated with the drawings that I used to make... cities, cars and people... all in proper perspective. They kept on feeding me scraps of paper, canceled checks or anything they could find for me to draw on. When I was eleven years old, my father introduced me to "commercial art" by finding me my first freelance job. I made seventy dollars painting advertising billboards for the home run fence of our town’s little league field and became famous with everyone in my sixth grade class.

While studying commercial art in college, I worked at Wambach Communications Group, in Rhinebeck, New York as a part-time graphic designer and was hired full-time after my graduation. In 1981, I moved to South Florida to attend the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. I won several awards and two scholarship nominations then decided to take a semester off and work in the field for a while. I worked in doing graphic design, production and illustration at Group 3hree Advertising in Pompano Beach. I liked this job so much, that I just kept on working and never went back to school.

After about a year, I resigned from Group 3hree... I left the office on Friday and came back to work that Monday as a freelancer for several weeks making twice as much money. I figured this was the way to go, so I hired myself out to ad agencies and design studios throughout South Florida and made a decent living as an artist.

In 1985, I moved to Boston, Massachusetts and found an art director position at Brewster Advertising in Cambridge and began traveling for photo shoots, press checks and trade shows. After three years, I felt that I acquired enough experience to go off on my own again, so I left to pursue a career as a freelance illustrator and professional bass player. For the next six years, I had the time of my life. During the day, I worked at home, illustrating for high profile book publishers and ad agencies throughout the country while my nights and weekends were spent playing music in clubs, resorts and colleges all over New England.

In 1995, I became the Art Director for Discipleship Publications International, a Christian book publisher in Woburn, MA where I was first introduced to computer graphics, web design, and the publishing industry.

I left DPI in 1999 and became Senior Graphic Designer for The DeWolfe Companies, a regional real estate company in Lexington, MA. DeWolfe was acquired by NRT and merged with Coldwell Banker/Hunneman to form Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

I returned to school at Northeastern University in Boston in 2000 and received my Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communication in 2003. I also study Tae Kwon Do and received a black belt in 2003 and am still active in music as a bassist and guitarist.

I currently work for NRT Northeast as a Senior Graphic Designer and have won several awards for excellence in graphic design. I also work for the United States Treasury as an Master Designer in the Artistic Infusion Program of the United States Mint.
