I was born and raised in the heart of Cleveland, Ohio. My days consisted of Cleveland sports and the arts. My father was a police officer and on the side an expert carpenter. His detail helped me how I see detail today. My grandfather was an artist and printer and that is where I get my fine arts side from. I attend The University of Akron where I am going for my BFA in Graphic Design. I work for a couple design agencies and also work freelance. Last year, I began writing and my love for drawing came back. I am still not at where I want to be with my illustrations, but it's a start. I am also a musician who has shared the stage with several national acts and just had one my songs featured in a new television sitcom!
