• New York-based artist and animator.

• Currently studying animation at the School of Visual Arts.

Who?

• Born on Long Island, NY, I have been a student of the visual arts as far back as I can recall.

• Inspired by anything and everything that tickles my fancy, from video games, to comics, to clay models.

• I seek to entertain people the same way these things entertained me- by instilling both hopeful and youthful joy and wonder in my artwork and cartoons.

• I am a proficient artist and animator in both digital art as well as pixel art, with extensive histories working in both mediums.
