I graduated from the Tyler School of Art with a BFA in painting. I was a scenic artist for many years designing and building stage sets, sculptures and various other multi-media projects. I worked with many notable companies like The Wilma Theater, Upstage Right Productions, Proof Productions, Busch Gardens, Nabisco, Kraft and many others. One of my favorites was when I was commissioned to build a life size Mr. Peanut for Planters’ 100th Anniversary. This monumental sculpture now lives at the Atlantic City Historical Museum. This website shows a few examples of that kind of work, but it is mostly dedicated to my fine art. My most recent body of work has focused on portraiture using both oil paints and dry pastels as my medium. Please contact me if you are interested in attending one of my portraiture workshops, demonstrations or if you're interested in purchasing or commissioning a piece of art from me.

THE TELEVISION HOST
I've also been a television host for the last 6 years. I've been the host of two television shows on Sprout and NBC. One of my shows, Noodle and Doodle, airs on Sprout, NBC, and other networks all around the world. I no longer host my other show, The Sunny Side Up Show, but I did from 2007 to to 2013 and it was a fantastic 6 years. That was a LIVE, interactive show that used to keep me pretty busy year round.

I live in the Philadelphia area with my wife, son, and baby girl soon to be born in March. I'm originally from Lansdale, PA. I spent the first ten years of my life living in South Korea and California. My passion for television hosting comes from my enjoyment of connecting with people and working creatively with a team.
