I have been drawing since the age of 2 when I could hold a crayola marker. In my teenage years, I discovered the world of Japanese manga, anime and art which inspired me to follow my dreams to become a great cartoonist!
My career as a teacher started in 2012, soon after I graduated from The School of Visual Arts. I taught manga, comics, animation and drawing in the After 3 @ Nest+m program in NYC. Since 2012, I have taught drawing and painting in many after school programs in NYC, Queens and Brooklyn.
Now I am a published Comic Artist, Author, Illustrator, Art Coach and Founder of Start Shows, a company I run with my wife that organizes Art Exhibitions for emerging artists in NYC galleries.
I have been featured in the Brooklyn 12 News, the Staten Island Advance Newspaper, Boro Magazine, Cosmos 91.5 FM, You Me NYC magazine, Humans of Astoria Blog, NYartbeat.com.
