Besides the comic work I also have a collection of single images that I shoot expressing different moods and themes.

As of 2011 I formally began my company Distilled Minds Studios, a media production company as well as an artists group. Together with artists I have recruited into Distilled Minds we have displayed work at various galleries in CT and NY.
