I received my training at the School of Visual Arts where I earned both a Bachelors Degree in Illustration and a Masters Degree in Applied Teaching.
After graduation I was fortunate to work in illustration, animation and comic books. I have worked on freelance illustration projects, animated shows for the Disney Channel and as an in-house artist for D.C. Comics.
I left the commercial art field to pursue a greater love, teaching. Today I work as a High School Visual Arts Teacher, an Art History College Lecturer and draw and paint everyday for myself.
I have shown my work in a variety of shows from New York to England. My work is rooted in the ideals of classical realism and a deep love of nature.
I paint in primarily watercolor and gouache; preferring to work directly from life.
I proudly live Queens, New York with my wife and two children.
