He has created illustrations and animations for the entertainment industry including Showtime’s Dexter, The Food Network’s “The Secret Life Of…” and illustrations for Paramount Television’s Medium, ABC’s October Road and the History Channel’s Strange Rituals. He was awarded in the California Open Juried Exhibition for his painting “Mad Love” and he recently completed a portrait commission for Tanya Haden and Jack Black. He lives with his wife, daughter and two cats in Venice, CA.

“I want my images to grab you and drag you if not willingly, then kicking and screaming into my picture . I’m inspired and interested in imaginative storytelling pictures that evoke an emotional response. I’m attracted to subject matter from the world of pulp illustration, other worldly realms of fantasy, drama and horror as well as classical illustration and realism.”
