artist bio

I am originally from Long Branch, New Jersey.  I received a BS from Rutgers College in 1998, a BA from Mason Gross School of the Arts in 2002, and completed my Master of Arts at Kean University with a studio concentration in painting.   My family has provided me with a background of artistic criteria and influence.   I currently teach drawing and painting, photography, and AP Art History at Paramus High School in Paramus, NJ, and reside in Morris County with my wife Stephanie and son Samuel.
