Design
Having over twenty five years in exhibit, event, museum, point-of-purchase, logo and retail design, I enjoy using my versatility and experience to tackle just about any challenge. Having a background in fine arts and illustration also enables me to convey concepts in sketch form as well as digitally.

Illustration
I also perform illustration work. This has transitioned from traditional techniques to the digital realm. For this I use primarily Corel Painter or Adobe Photoshop. Please refer to portfolio tab for various style samples. I still do occasionally bring out the brushes and oils if a portrait is desired.

Writing
I recently had a novel published which includes my illustrations. It is titled "The Legend of SqueezeboxSqueeze - A Miraculous, Magical, Musical Tale". The book is aimed at the middle-grade market but will hopefully be a story that adults might enjoy as well. It was a spinoff of a project I have been engaged in with partners Andrea Green (Philadelphia) and Paul Green (London). Over the passed three years we have been developing a concept for a children's music education brand that includes a proposed animated series.  Much of my work here has involved animated character development. Updates will be provided.

Please contact me if I can be of any service to you. My office is located in the Boston, MA area.

I have also taught courses in fine art and design at the University of Delaware, the Art Institute of Philadelphia, the University of the Arts (Philadelphia) and Boston University.
