Born 1978 in Jersey City, New Jersey, I’m an International Baccalaureate Diploma Recipient and I studied Marketing Management to earn my Bachelor’s Degree at Saint Peter’s University. It’s been said that I have great ideas but I’m more than just an idea guy. I write, I design, I photograph, I paint, and I produce music and video. I pursued study in marketing because the effects of messaging, presentation and other stimuli on consumer behavior intrigue me. Creating allows me to further explore and sift through the chaos and unruly influence of media noise to shift emotional response through the work I produce.
The result isn’t always pointed, nor intended to be, but it’s certainly purposed. I live and work in
Hoboken, New Jersey.

I’m an artist who has lived his whole life in the New York/New Jersey area. As such, I have been deeply affected by the vertical buildings and the compositional grid of the city. While I paint and draw both abstractly, and realistically, I’m most fully engaged in an ongoing abstract series entitled, “Structural Landscape.”

My aesthetic is one of problem-solving the picture plane to its logical and organic solution. I believe in a less subjective light that “good painting” exists in the formal language of painting. Shapes, edges, color, composition, brush strokes, etc. I intend to show how abstraction and realism aren’t mutually exclusive but are actually dependent upon each to create something more significant.
