About Me

Photo by Eric Tetreault

Three weeks after finishing college, I caught a one-way Greyhound bus to New York and was soon illustrating for Valiant & ElfQuest Comics, painting book and album covers, and creating interior illustrations for various magazines and entertainment companies.

After 9/11, I left NYC, and relocated to New Orleans…just in time for Hurricane Katrina. Opportunity lives where most fear to tread, so I bought a flooded house in the 9th Ward. It’s beautiful now:)

In 2009, I completed my illustrated autobiography, “Lightsurfing: Living Life in the Front of My Mouth”. It’s a tale of making a living with wits and a paintbrush, and all the wild, weird, and wonderful things that happen as a result. You can read my interview about my book in the February 2010 issue of Fan to Pro.
