• I was born on Flag Day, 1984 in Salem, Massachusetts. My mother is a schoolteacher and my father is a lawyer. I am the middle of two brothers. Like every artist, my talent burgeoned at an early age. Click the image to the right to view some of my early doodles.

  • My formal training began in first grade, under artist Ken Herwitz of Marblehead. Every Saturday morning, I learned the fundamentals of drawing and eventually, painting. I credit much of my development to this remarkable teacher. Click the image to see my doodles develop into drawings.

  • From 1998 to 2002, I attended Saint John's Prep, a nearby all boys Catholic High School. The Prepís art department, under the leadership of Harriet Malone, encouraged a self-directed study, and my paintings were able to mature.

  • From 2002 to 2006, I attended the Rhode Island School of Design.

  • My biggest commission came shortly after RISD graduation: The Prep wanted a mural for its newly expanded library to commemorate the schoolís bicentennial. With my bank account full, I moved to New York City to learn what all the hype was about.

  • The money didn't last long. It got to a point where I couldn't afford food. By the time I left New York, I weighed just 119 lbs.

  • In 2009, I returned to Salem, formed the Art School of Salem, and completed several significant series.
