About the Author
I was born and raised in New Jersey. I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design where I received a BFA in Illustration. While at RISD, I experimented with different media choices, Animation, Illustration and even Digital Illustration. While at RISD, I attended a summer program in Rome. It was during this course of studies, I added a new illustration style to my repertoire.
After graduation, I returned to the New York City area, I created graphic work for several online based companies, freelanced toy design and worked for a period of time in retail sales. I spent part-time taking graduate studies courses in computer graphics and other illustration based courses between Pratt Institute and School of Visual Arts.
Never losing sight of my creative dreams, I always sketched and conceptualized ideas. It is here where I newly concentrated on freelance illustration which includes cartooning, children’s book illustration and animation storyboards. Which led to a current study in character animation. And beyond that, who knows. Any experience is an experience that can lead to inspiration.
