MY LIFE

CHILDHOOD

I was born on Flag Day, 1984 in Salem, Massachusetts. Like most artists, my talent burgeoned at an early age. Click the image to the left to view some of my early doodles.

YOUTH

My formal training began in first grade, under the guidance of artist Ken Herwitz. Over the course of 10 years, he taught me the fundamentals of drawing and painting.

HIGH SCHOOL

From 1998 to 2002, I attended Saint John's Prep, an all boys Catholic High School. Under art teacher Harriet Malone, I received the encouragement needed for my work to mature. 

RISD

From 2002 to 2006, I attended the Rhode Island School of Design.

MURAL COMMISSION

My biggest commission came shortly after RISD graduation, when I was hired to paint a mural for my high school library.

NEW YORK

With my bank account full, I moved to New York City in 2008 to see what all the hype was about. The money, however, didn't last long, and I soon could not even afford food to eat. But despite my weight of just 119 lbs, my work made incredible strides.

SALEM

By 2009, I felt it best to return to Salem. There, I could actually afford to be an artist. I moved my studio in the Bowditch House (once home to Salem's famed navigator) and began producing many significant series.

ART SCHOOL OF SALEM

To make ends meat, I established The Art School of Salem. For the next 7 years, I would teach children and adults how to draw and paint, an endeavor I found incredibly rewarding.

STEVE JOBS PORTRAIT

Around 2011, I had painted a portrait of Steve Jobs in the hopes of enticing commissions. When I brought it to the 5th Ave branch in NYC, it was literally thrown out the door.

GLOWING FRAMES

In 2012, I designed and built the world's first glowing frame. This ultimately led to my first explorations into abstract art.
