I live in the Suburbs of Chicago with my wife and 3 children. I studied Graphic Design and Illustration at College of Dupage and have been a Free-Lance Artist for over 15 years.
For the past 5 years I have worked for Poptoss Inc. a batting tee company that was a start up when I started and has grown into an established online retailer. I am in charge of designing and maintaining their website, along with online marketing and printed marketing materials. While working for Poptoss I have also designed an Owner’s Manual and created packaging for their products. I have used organic SEO to boost their Google ranking and continue to create web graphics and maintain their website over the years.
During the past 5 years I have also worked with a wide range of individuals, start-ups and established businesses. During these endeavors I have continued to design and produce many printed and online marketing materials as well as designed and maintained a number of websites.
In 2009 I started an online service at portraittopencil.com making custom pencil drawings from clients photographs. I have obtained many customers through that website and have done everything from single subject portraits to family portraits, family pets, homes/buildings and landscapes. My work has been featured on wedding invitations, wedding announcements, “In Memorial” cards, advertisements and of course on families walls and fireplaces.
In 2007 I had my first Illustrated children’s book published and I am currently in the process of finishing my 2nd book to be published in the near future.
