I worked for over 20 years in feature film, animation and commercials then did a paradigm shift back in 2010 to pursue a career as a field biologist working with other dedicated scientists on projects helping to protect and study endangered species.
I have worked as a cartoonist for the Village Voice, a storyboard artist, an illustrator and a field biologist/ecologist. Personally interested in topics of climate change, habitat loss/
ecology, conservation and helping to assist and contribute to public awareness on these important topics. I am currently working on a feature film screenplay and graphic novel
whose main character, Joe Plant conveys a message covering these critical topics.

you are part of the natural world and you come to accept that." -Sir David Attenborough
