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 in 1989. Subsequently, my artwork was recognized with an ADDY and Rx Club Award of Excellence. During my profession, I’ve been employed by a number of prominent clientele, from advertising agencies to the entertainment industry, such as Foote Cone & Belding, BLT Communications, Nickelodeon and Warner Bros. Animation. Formerly affiliated with the San Francisco Society of Illustrators and the Animation Guild, I was active in ICON4, the Illustration Conference in 2005. By 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!
