At Carnegie Mellon University I studied illustration and drawing. After graduation I worked for a small game developer near Pittsburgh called DreamForge Intertainment doing game design and illustration. Then I worked as a staff illustrator and graphic designer in a corporate environment in Boca Raton while completing my MFA in digital art at Florida Atlantic University. Since 1999, I have been working as a staff illustrator and graphic designer for Brilliant Star magazine. In addition, I have been doing freelance illustration and graphic design for Studio 9 Inc. creating picture books, comics, games, graphic novels, and more. Recently my work has received awards from SCWBI (Merit awards for magazine art), the RCC (Best of Class and Award of Excellence for art), MOM’s CHOICE (Gold and Silver for book design), GAMA (Origins Silver Honor for Card Game of the Year), IBPA (Ben Franklin Silver Award for book design), and the TOY MAN (Award of Excellence for book design).
I write fiction, essays, articles and comics. But mostly fiction.
