Born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on February 20th, 1977, I quickly began to take interest in art, primarily with sketches and colorings. By the time I was ten years old I had an easel and painted, and when I was twelve I entered a small school of art in Mechanicsburg where I used pastels and different pencils for the first time and experimented with landscape and perspective styles. The next few years I added clay to my routine, and woodcarving as well. By the time I was fifteen I had studied architecture for more than a year, both structural and landscape, and was employed in the landscaping industry.
My interest in Digital Arts began to take shape at at age fifteen, when I began learning Graphic Arts in High School, where I first studied photography, printing, bookbinding, plate making, and PhotoShop. It was then that I aquired my first computer for home so that I could continue educating myself while experimenting with many different digital outputs. Soon thereafter I learned HTML and had my first website online in 1995.
With HTML knowledge, I was now able to reach a worldwide audience to share my work, while incorporating imagery, photography, and video as well. From that point on, I've continued to experiment with everything I have learned over the years while always trying to further my education by exploring new areas as well.
I approach any project with a completely open frame of mind, art is something that I feel from on the inside and the end result of my work should reflect that. I don't follow many rules or traditional methods, and I view everything as a canvas, for I feel everywhere is an opportunity to make art.
