I was born and raised in Otsego and Delton, Michigan and my wife Sherry and I now live near Hastings. I graduated from Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids and I am an Air Force Veteran having served in Vietnam and Germany. I have a passion for history, flight and nostalgia which is reflected in much of my work. 2021 will be my sixth year entering ArtPrize. My 2016 entry "Protect & Serve" placed 5th in the 2D category and my 2012 “Tuskegee Airmen” entry placed in the Top 50 overall and now is permanently on display at the Air Zoo in Portage. Two of my other entries include "Brothers in Arms" and "Courage," a tribute to Jackie Robinson. I recently completed an installation in four Bronson Hospital locations entitled "Heroes Among Us" honoring service men and women. My honors and awards include being a featured artist at the Society of Illustrators in New York City and winning multiple ADDY Awards for Excellence in Illustration.
