Born and raised in Brooklyn, as a Comic Book Artist /Graphic Designer, despite my age I have been in my professional for the past seventeen years, as a child I spent most of my time in art. I’ve always tried to be a creative person and I try to add a little beauty through everything I contact. My interest mainly stems from my little world such as art (illustration, Science Fiction) writing (little poetry, words of inspiration, more Science Fiction) computers (hard to get away from it) philosophy (general ideologies of life and the pursuit of happiness) and the biggest part of my life raising my son (Joshua). I’ve always wanted to be in the comic book industry but couldn’t find a way to be happy in it. Confused, I know it’s like wanting to play in the band but hated to play the song they always seem to be playing. I always thought every highly of the medium and see its great potential and the first step I will not only announce my birth but make a statement on the hopefully changing industry.
