As a young adult he spent seven years working in tourism based in the UK and overseas, primarily in Incentive Travel and guiding in central London. At age 25, he decided to return to University to pursue a new career in Illustration.

In 2013, he moved from London to San Francisco and earned his BFA at The Academy Of Art. Studying under artists such as Craig Nelson, Steven Kloepher and Lisa Berrett, he developed a love for imaginative realism, story telling and traditional oil painting. Through this medium he always endeavors to convey believable worlds, be they of a forgotten past or possible future.
