His uncle, a portrait artist, taught him how to draw a face when he was 7. From then, you couldn't stop his passion for illustration. His inspirations originally came from Marvel comics and Disney cartoons, but as he grew older, he took inspiration from almost anything that caught his eye. He studied Art & Design in Leyton College from 1997-1999, then took an interest in Graphic Design from 2000, studying in various academies until he graduated with honors at Middlesex University in 2005. Since then he has worked as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer, designing anything from name badges to movie posters.
