Degrees and Certifications:
My journey into the world of art began when I was 5. I would lay down on front of the TV along with my brother and draw all of my favorite cartoon characters. Little did I know this new “hobby” would develop into a life-long passion for the arts.
When the time came for choosing a career, the call to become an artist became even clearer. I graduated from the University of Florida, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. I had found a new love for graphic design and illustration, working for over 20 years at multiple advertising firms and publication companies in the Gainesville/Ocala area with works recognized by both the Advertising Federation and the Florida Magazine Association.
Today, I have much to be thankful for. The support of my wife and our two beautiful daughters and the amazing opportunity of sharing my passion for art with the students at West Port High School and helping them find their own.
