I always wanted to be an artist, ever since I was a little kid drawing cartoons at my mom's kitchen table. And I had a promising start -- drawing editorial cartoons at the Ohio State University newspaper, and then at a daily paper in Virginia.
But when I moved back to Ohio to start an animation company with my friends, things changed. Within a couple of years, I wasn't an artist anymore: I was managing a small business, raising a family, and flying back and forth to California as I directed DVD sequels for Disney. It was a lot of fun -- but I never found time to draw or paint anymore.
My wife and I moved to Saint Petersburg, Florida a couple of years ago. After years of telling stories through movies, I now have the freedom to tell them with paint.
