I started my career in the newspaper business and quickly moved on to Advertising agencies. At one agency I became involved in animating a TV commercial. It was so much fun !
I moved to Los Angeles (near the beach) and worked in the Animation Industry as an assistant animator, prop designer and in layout and presentation for Hanna Barbera, Filmation and Marvel. Then I began creating style guides and licensed artwork based on animated films and characters for numerous companies including Disney, Warner Brothers and Universal Studios. For the past few years I've worked in the Home Decor Industry and now freelance in publishing, film and TV and have opened an online store of items featuring my designs (like the one included here).
When work slowed during the recession I taught Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator in the evening through LAUSD. I still give private instruction and also volunteer and contribute to charities that serve veterans and children in need.
