I spent hours upon hours creating art throughout my early and later childhood in the rather mundane Chicago burbs. At some point I discovered girls, music, alcohol, and how much fun it was to mix all those things together with good friends. Eventually my creative toolbox saw little light of day, collecting dust in a closet as I went about instead creating the memories that old age loves to rummage through with a chuckle and shake of the head.
After moving to Florida and feeling a kind of rebirth, I found myself filling pages of sketchbooks once again. A few sketches matured into finished works and my job as a professional picture framer allowed me to properly display them at several art shows which was surprisingly, to this introvert, enjoyable. When my beautiful baby girl arrived I even quit my job for a bit to be a daycare-daddy-artist.
But in those days no one paid you to make art and I transitioned into a more practical compromise based in a brand new frontier... the World Wide Web. (oooooh!) Basic HTML graduated to more advanced coding and graphics and, KAPOWIE!, I'm building interactive worlds in Flash and puting smiles on clients' faces. A few short years later Flash goes and dies on me (thanks Steve, ya jerk) and I'm back to square one - totally creative-less. So here we are on this website, the home of my newest chapters.
