Hi! I have 18 years experience in illustration, graphic art, and design. I'm a nationally recognized and respected, award winning, published artist who’s work has appeared in several books and publications. Largely inspired by Muppet creator Jim Henson, I have made art my life’s passion. I have also done journalist writing for news groups, script writing for local theater, and ad writing for large retailers. For the last 13 years I have worked for The Salvation Army as a publications specialist, editor, writer, graphic designer, illustrator, and art director in New York. I have also done freelance work for the Jim Henson Company, the American Broadcasting Company, Clear Channel Communications, SModcast Internet Radio, the Gramercy Brass Orchestra of New York, and Imperial Brass. I have a beautiful wife and daughter and we are all a bunch of Jersey kids.
