About Me

I HAVE BEEN A PROFESSIONAL DRUMMER FOR MOST OF MY LIFE.

I HAVE BEEN AN ARTIST ALL OF MY LIFE.

I WAS A MEMBER OF THE BAND DISHWALLA WHO HAD SUCCESS IN THE 90'S WITH THE HIT "COUNTING BLUE CARS" WHICH WAS NUMBER ONE ON THE BILLBOARD CHARTS AND SALES OF OVER A MILLION RECORDS.

I ALSO WORK WITH THE BAND, TONIC WHO'S HIT"IF YOU COULD ONLY SEE" WAS A STAPLE ON THE RADIO IN THE 90'S AS WELL AS SELLING OVER 2 MILLION RECORDS.

DURING MY SENIOR YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL IN LAWRENCE ,NEW JERSEY , I WAS TORN BETWEEN GOING TO ART SCHOOL AT MY TEACHERS ENCOURAGEMENT, OR GOING TO THE BERKLEE SCHOOL OF MUSIC IN BOSTON TO PURSUE MUSIC.

I THOUGHT ,'"WHAT CAN I DO WHILE I'M YOUNG THAT I CAN'T DO AS WELL WHEN I'M OLDER, THE ANSWER WAS "ROCK!".

SO THATS HOW I MADE THE DECISION TO PURSUE A MUSIC CAREER FIRST AND AN ART CAREER LATER.

WELL IT'S LATER AND HERE I AM PURSUING ART!

ALL OF THE ART YOU SEE ON THIS PAGE WAS DONE ON AN IPAD, USING TOOLS REMINISCENT OF ILLUSTRATION DONE IN THE 50'S USING GOUACHE, AND WATERCOLOR BRUSH TOOLS.

I ALSO WORK AND HAVE TRAINED IN THE CLASSIC MEDIUMS OF OIL,ACRYLIC,PASTEL AND CHARCOAL.

IN A NUTSHELL, I DRAW AND PAINT THE SAME WAY I PLAY DRUMS, PURE AND FULL OF FEEL.

TECHNIQUE IS ONLY A TOOL, FEELING AND SOUL IS ART.

I HOPE MY WORK RESONATES WITH YOU AS I EXPLORE THE NEW FRONTIER OF DIGITAL ART.
