Early on, I developed a love of art. My stick figures were a little more developed than the other kids. By the fourth grade I was selling my drawings on the playground. Upon graduating from high school, I joined the Navy to travel and earn money for college. On the ship I would sketch portraits of girlfriends, pets, and cars for added income. I soon learned art was my calling. In 1992 I received an honorable discharge as a decorated Persian Gulf War Veteran. I applied to the School of Visual Arts to pursue my passion for art. I double majored and graduated with a BFA in Advertising and Design. My career started as an art director working for Jordan McGrath. Since then I've worked for such award winning agencies as Avrett Free and Ginsberg, Kirshenbaum Bond and Partners, Merkley and Partners, Margeotes Fertitta and Partners, McCann Erickson, TBWA Chiat/Day, Young & Rubicam, Foote Cone and Belding, Harper Collins, Madison Square Garden, MTV, Showtime, and the Kaplan Thaler Group. Currently, I am a freelance professional, working from my private office in Tarrytown NY.
