‘I’ve lived in Long Beach, Long Island all my life and found a passion for art at a very early age. I was mostly inspired by Loony Toons, Tex Avery and infamous gems from the 80’s and 90’s along with a nice handful of anime and horror movies thrown into that list. Creating characters and writing stories became one of my favorite past times and as I got older there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to pursue art as a career.’
‘I graduated from School of Visual Arts in 2010 with a degree in traditional animation. It’s probably the most rewarding thing to see something you create with your hands come to life with a few strategically posed drawings. I’m always inspired by other artists to grow and improve as I journey through my career.
Currently I’m working as a freelance artist, working on a bunch of different projects from children’s book illustrations to character designing and animation. Though, I have to say, what I’m most excited about is attending events and parties as a caricature artist. I feel like it’s opened up another philosophical door in the creativity section of my brain – I love it.’
