I was born and raised in Vineland, New Jersey,
A 1999 graduate of Hussian School of Art, I worked in graphic design for over 10 years in Philadelphia at both the corporate and studio level. When I officially retired from graphic design, I found myself owning a most awesome coffee shop, also in Philadelphia where I was inspired to start. pivoting from pixels and flowcharts to my true love of the fine arts. So I sold the coffee shop, rented a studio on the beach and started painting, That was a few years ago ans a lot has happened since. Currently I am working in a studio out of the Fishtown section of Philadelphia.
