Basic Bio and History... I’ll do my best to keep this short.

Born on the 4th of July... Baltimore, Maryland... 1970. That makes me old enough to remember life before the Macintosh revolution. I started off shooting halftones on stat cameras, cutting layers of rubylith and changing chemicals for diffusion transfer machines. Spending entire days hand drawing type to the get the dope three dimensional layouts that press type couldn’t provide. How about Photoshop before layers and saving everything on SyQuest disks? Old school...

In 1992, I graduated from The Maryland Institute College of Art with a BFA. Spent several years working in different shirt shops and picking up freelance jobs around the east coast. In 1996 I moved to New Jersey to attend The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. That period of time allowed me to dig into New York City and open up to the idea of larger markets.

Shortly afterwards, in 1998 I relocated to the west coast and worked for Powell Skateboards in Santa Barbara, California. Southern California has been a huge catalyst in helping me to develop the fine art end of my work. Along the way, I've also fed a nasty habit for photography and anything related to old cars. I was lucky enough to meet other like minded creative types and we began to put together our own group shows and events. At the same time, started working freelance for Icon Motosports doing helmet and jacket work.

In early 2006, I moved to Los Angeles and set up shop downtown. I landed a job working for West Coast Choppers in Long Beach and took my place in L.A. traffic. In January of this year, I returned to full time freelance work. I currently work the home office and do whatever it takes to make the landlord happy. In between the paychecks, I paint and get in on shows around town. Everything is a work in progress.
