A working artist since my late teens, I started out in animation working as a production artist for a host of small studios in and around NYC on projects from commercials, feature films, and shows, including projects for MTV and Nickelodeon. When the industry changed I wasn't able to relocate to continue that work and shifted to illustration, graphic design, comics and sculpture. Sculpture took me into the weird world of event design and cakes where I frequently built pieces for corporate vendors, celebrity weddings and reality television. I even appeared on Cake Boss, Buddy vs Duff and Amazing Wedding Cakes, despite my best efforts to stay invisible. While building complex structures on painfully short deadlines, I moonlighted as a book designer, completing four, 300 page, '100 Greatest Moments in DC Comics' encyclopedias. I continue to take classes and expand my art and software skills, no matter what my day job entails. During Quarantine I participated in Insider Art, a charity comic anthology to assist female and non-binary comic book retailers. 
I'm currently working on several comic book projects (both my own and work-for-hire), illustrating a cookbook and teaching art.
I'm now in a mid-career-change, looking at relocating (finally, I'm able) for the work I want to do, with a concentration on fine art, comic book art and (back to) animation. I am open to freelance, contract and staff jobs.
