I was born in Los Angeles, California, picked up a pencil and started drawing. I wanted to become an illustrator, so I attended California State University, Long Beach until they gave me a B.F.A. in illustration. I did a lot of editorial illustration (Los Angeles Times, AARP’s Modern Maturity, Adweek, etc). I was lured away from traditional art by the video game industry where I applied my art skills in 3D digital modeling, texturing and lighting game environments. Done with the game industry, I transitioned to the field of architecture where I did more 3D modeling. I teach 3D modeling & rendering as well as drawing in the Architecture Department at Los Angeles Harbor College. I also teach 3D modeling & animation in the Art Department at El Camino College. Recently I have returned to creating traditional art focusing on figurative drawing and painting. My goal is to return to my hard-wired passion of traditional illustration. That’s my story.
