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. 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.
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
