First, did you read the backstory?
I was born in Canarsie, Brooklyn. My awkward school years were divided between Long Island, Florida and the sticks of upstate New York. I moved back to the city in 1997 for art school; I studied Industrial Design and worked in a wood shop. After a short stint at a Russian art gallery in Soho, followed by an even shorter stint at a publishing house in Binghamton, NY, I spent nearly 20 years working as a graphic designer in east midtown NYC.
These days I work for myself and live in the Bronx with one and a half cats, a room dedicated to painting, writing and daydreaming. I own too many books and dabble in intermittent fasting and turntablism. I am a Mets fan.
