Doodle: Lil' Batman on Yellow Sticky Note
Been awhile since I posted anything, haven't been drawing much for some time. But I do have many doodles around my desks. Again, my doodles are images that I simple draw without thinking, almost as if my subconscious mind has taken over and the pencil just ...

Introduction

I've worked as a cartoonist, animator and toy designer with companies like Walt Disney, Russ Berrie and Commonwealth Toys. In 2006, I began my own company as a Creative Director for Tom's Toy International in China, designing toys, costumes and pet products for mass market retailers like Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens and PetSmart.

I wrote and illustrated my first hard cover picture book, “Bobby’s Biggest Bubble”. The book was self-published and financed with the help of a successful KickStarter campaign and reviewed in Publisher’s Weekly on Feb 18th, 2013I’m currently looking to publish several of my other stories: “Little BAD Riding Hood”, a mystical wintry tale called, “Whazzit” and a Halloween tale called, “Worm-Wire Glasses”.

I live in central New Jersey with my lovely wife, Carla, and our two overly hyper attention-seeking Australian Cattle Dogs.

Authentic and original pizza and Italian food at its best. My wife's personal favorite is the mushroom funghi pizza. They even provide gluten free options. This little place is a rare gem in Central Jersey.

Fantastic food. This is our new local favorite restaurant. Not only do they have great Chinese food, there's also Thai and Japanese selections on the menu. Highly recommended.

Nice small restaurant, very crowded when we went around 9PM. You order and pay first, then get seated. You also need to get your own silverware and water before you sit. They bring the food to your flag numbered table. Food is organic and very fresh. Honey mustard was my favorite dipping sause.
