Pirate, Poet and American Artist. Raised in Coney Island, Brooklyn and South Ozone Park, Queens, New York. My professional work has included retail design, visual merchandising, interior design, retail management, event planning, basic carpentry, cleaning fish tanks, cooking for the family and heavy lifting as needed. I have visited 48 states, lived in 7 cities and I have a deep and complete appreciation for being home. I studied design and architecture in Chicago while living in Oak Park, IL and consider my time there as a major influence in my art, illustrations and line compositions. I currently live and create in Glendale Queens, New York.
