What kind of accomplishments have you done in the artworld? Well, nothing to make me rich or famous but, I'm going to keep trying!

Have you won any awards for your artwork? Yes, I have received various awards for my animations from the Animated GIF Artists Guild (AGAG) and from Gif Artist/ Animation Factory.

Why the interest in cartoon animation? Two words. Cartoons Rule! I've always loved a good still cartoon but, they take on a whole new meaning when they come to life.

How many years have you been pursuing art? Since I was about eight years old. I think I drew Snoopy more than Charles Schultz did. I began pursuing art as my career in 1996 and can't get enough of it.

How old are you? 29, isn't everybody! OK, 38.

Has anyone been a particular inspiration to you in pursuing art? My grandmother, somehow she knew I had it in me. The rest of my family and friends for repeated suggestions of "You really should do something with your art."

Do you do this full time, and if not, what else do you do? I am a full time graphic/web designer for company that specializes in web site design for trade show and meeting planner associations, Excel On-line.
If you really like doing animations, thinking of ideas for your next one is always a full time job :)

What are your goals for your artwork? First and foremost, creating artwork that someone out there will enjoy. The rest will hopefully fall in place.

Did you ever have any formal training in art? Formal? No. Well, maybe one lesson. My grandmother showed me the double secret "stick your tongue out of the side of your mouth" technique of drawing. Makes a straight line everytime. Try it!

what are the two most compelling reasons someone would want to visit your website? 1) As proof that graphic and web designers can never completely finish their own site.
2) In accordance to #1, it never looks the same each time you visit.
