I am a fourth generation native-born Californian whose family has resided in the Golden State since 1874. My early years were spent growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area. From the beginning I’ve had an interest in drawing and art in general. Over time, I gained other interests, especially a fascination with dinosaurs and anything prehistoric. Also reptiles/ amphibians and historic subjects. However, I later made a decision to embark on a career in the military, and served eight years in the United States Marine Corps. Nonetheless I never stopped occupying my spare time with sketching and drawing.
At the end of those eight years I decided to hang up my uniform and pursue a career in art. I’d originally planned to be an illustrator, but over time my emphasis branched out into fine art. All the while I never lost my interest in Paleontology or anything associated with it. Retirement gave me the opportunity to exhibit my pieces at different venues and gain contact with a wider audience.
