General info
Art Director
Los Angeles,CA
Art has been a passion of mine since I was a child. Many hours of my school years were spent doodling on textbook covers or garnering the attention of pretty girls by sketching their profiles.

I am a self-taught artist who has worked his way from my initial job working in print at Kinkos to my current position as Art Director at a advertising agency.

I provide graphics and illustrations free-of-charge to many non-profit organizations, service organizations, and schools.
I feel it is my opportunity to give back.

A few of my favorites artists include Ernie Barnes, Michael Schwab and Shephard Fairy. Their styles are distinct, crisp, clean, and boldly simplistic.

I am married to my best friend Michelle and have two amazing children, Kaia and Gavin, and one 100 lbs dog named Barney.
