At the age of eight, I began studying under the late Helen Carkin, a renowned batik artist.


Throughout high school and college I won various art awards and interned at Pittard Sullivan, one of Hollywood’s top broadcast graphic design houses, where I helped designed set pieces for TNT and NBC and storyboarded commercials for large corporate clients.


After that, I was the illustrator for York Publishing (Videomaker and SmarTV magazines) before earning an MBA from Cal State Chico and a PhD from Florida Atlantic University. Since then, I've worked on projects for Disney, the NBA, Oracle, Simon & Schuster, Cosmos-Maya Studios, Applewood Books, and many more (IMDb profile).
