Heavily influenced by the fantasy genre and animated cinemas, my predilection started to take shape. Majoring in Illustration from the Art Center College of Design, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree by 1989. Subsequently, my artwork was recognized with both an ADDY and Rx Club Award of Excellence. During my profession, I’ve been employed by a number of prominent clientele, from advertising agencies, such as Foote Cone & Belding, PicturePlane and BLT Communications to the entertainment industry, including Columbia TriStar Television, Warner Bros. Animation, and Sideshow Collectibles. Formerly affiliated with the San Francisco Society of Illustrators and the Animation Guild, I played an active participant in ICON4, the Illustration Conference by 2005. In the following year, Aristata Publishing released the volume Aphrodisia II, where my personal piece was published. Presently, I’m an Adjunct Professor teaching in the Digital Art & Animation Program, at Cogswell College!
