bio_photo_bwI was born in 1986, a native of New Jersey.  I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Medical Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2009, where I concentrated in premedical studies and illustration. From there I continued to illustrate for Nature Publishing, Bayer Healthcare, and many others.

In 2010, I decided to return to graduate school to pursue a Masters Degree in Computer Arts at the School of Visual Arts. My influences include a mix of science, anatomy, Surrealism, DaDa, and the masters of the Renaissance.
