I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, then known as the "Rubber Capital of the World."
From an early age I developed a love of art and drawing. As a teenager, my interests turned to film and animation.

After high school, I studied painting at the Cleveland Institute of Art before moving to Chicago, where I earned a BFA from the School of The Art Institute, with an emphasis on video.
While living in Chicago, I spent many years as a DJ/VJ at the legendary nightclub, Berlin.  I was also responsible for creating several of the club's infamous  decor installations, including Greek Love, Logoland, TV Land, and House of Games.​​​​​​​

After moving to Los Angeles I started working as an assistant editor at Greystone Communications, where I then became an editor. From there I moved on to Flight 33 Productions, where I edited a number of series as specials, such as Life After People and The Universe.​​​​​​​
Over the years I have also created music videos for artists in Chicago and in Los Angeles.
I now work as a freelance editor, and occasionally dabble in the art of animation, illustration, and logo design.
Most recently, I have produced and edited my own feature-length documentary, Dear Ike: Lost Letters to a Teen Idol.
