I was born in October of 1976 and raised in New Jersey, the youngest member in a family of four. My childhood home was in a quiet neighborhood on Village Road in the town of Sea Girt. Growing up I enjoyed drawing, playing video games, and hanging out with my best friend. I went to Wall Township Public Schools and spent most summers going to the beach. After graduating from high school, I went to the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, majoring in illustration. Right after college I moved down to Florida and supported myself made a living doing web design. I met my wife online on a David Bowie fan site and we dated for about 3 years before we got married and had some kids.
