As the page builds an audience, i'll be introducing demos, insights into my creative process, and more behind the scenes content, so make sure to subscribe!

Through Monroe Publications, my first published work 'Guadalcanal Had it All' is now available!

​Once again, the auditorium at Hamilton Grange Middle School is made a little brighter, with a brand new mural! 'My Place in History' is the latest edition to the school, and I feel confident in saying that this is the most impressive student created mural we have done to date. I am honored to be working with such talented students who were able to pull of such a monumental task. The focus of this piece was to pay homage to the iconic individuals who have paved the way on progressing key issues such as human rights, as well as for the children to see and plan for their own impact in history. Landscapes, portraits, abstract, and representational, this mural had elements from every branch of art, and while it was hard work, we had an exceptionally fun time making it. Special thanks to After School All Stars for their sponsorship and support. Click the image above to see what other great work CITYarts is doing.

The newest addition to the Hamilton Grange Middle School auditorium; 'Thinking Beyond the Stars' is finished! This is the completion of my second mural with CITYarts and Hamilton Grange, and I could not be more proud of the students that I had the privilege of work with. This was a much larger and logistically challenging mural then the first one, which was completed last June, and I have to say the students really hit it out of the park. The piece came out fantastic, and the auditorium, and therefore the rest of the school, is much more colorful because of it. Special thanks to After School All Stars for their sponsorship and support. Click the image above to see what other great work CITYarts is doing.

Their mission is to give you a look inside the artist’s mind and an insight into what inspires them.

'Our World' is completed! The school year has ended, and I am very happy and proud to present the finished mural, 'Our World' done for and by the students of Hamilton Grange Middle School. It was an honor to design and oversee the creation of this mural, and it was pure joy to see the students engaged in it's creation. 'Our World' represents the unique enviornment that these students see every day, while encorporating the themes of enviornmental awareness and global warming. This project would not have been possible if it wasn't for the help of After School All Stars, Hamilton Grange Middle School, and of course CITYarts.

Abby Wambach, a soccer icon, is retiring. To honor her career and legacy Gatorade put together a special TV spot title "Forget Me". I feel honored to say that I had a hand in creating the commercial, as the storyboard artist. For those unfamiliar with the term, a storyboard artist puts together drawings of what the final shots in the commercial will look like, before they begin shooting. This gives the director an idea of the visuals so he/she can efficiantly choose what they want to film, and what they don't. 


Feel free to watch the finished commercial by clicking the image above.

I have just begun working with CITYarts as their artist liaison with Hamilton Grange Middle School. In addition to leading weekly workshops with the students, I will be coordinating and creating a large scale mural in the Harlem community with the students as well as volunteers. CITYarts is a non for profit organization which engages youth in collaboration with professional artists in the creation of public art. Through this creative process CITYarts empowers, educates, and connects youth and children locally and around the world to become active participants in realizing their potential and transforming communities.

I am happy to share that I recently began working as the social media coordinator for New York based sculptor Leah Poller. We have recently launched the newly designed site for The Unmade Bed Project; an ongoing, creative and collaborative undertaking, built on submitted photographs of people's beds. The project explores the visual iconography of "the bed" and reveals an intimate portrait of each of us.

Exactly one year to the day after closing from damage due to Hurricane Sandy, Saf-T-Swim of Oceanside has reopened, and with a new look. Over the Thanksgiving break I completed a series of murals for the Oceanside location and I am happy to say that I helped in my own small way, to get them back on their feet. More pictures to come.

As of today my comission for nearly 40 paintings by a Howard Johnson Hotel in Queens is finished. The project consisted of scenes of New York, to give the many tourists staying in the hotel the New York experience. Every week I will have more finished photos to upload to the site, and right now I am very excited to get started on some other projects I havn't been able to get to for a while.
