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.
