Jeff was born outside of Pittsburgh and at the age of four he moved to a northern Illinois suburb between Chicago and Milwaukee. Through out his life Jeff was always drawing. At the age of two Jeff was drawing basic shapes with surprising accuracy. Soon he graduated to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers and the X-Men. Stylistically, Jeff has been heavily influenced by the work of Michelangelo and as well as comic book art, particuarly the works of Akira Toriyama, Alex Ross, and more recently Joshua Middleton

Jeffs passion for art took a serious turn when he entered Warren Township High School. For the first time he was receiving formal art training and it took hold. In those four years his skills greatly improved under the guidance of the teachers at Warren.

After graduating in 2004, Jeff went to the College of Lake County. Like at Warren, Jeffs skill improved and improved rapidly. Having graudated from CLC in 2006 with his associates degree in Fine Art, Jeff enrolled the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in order to continue his education. At Parkside the world of illustration opened to him, particularly in the use of traditional media. Under the guidence of Doug DeVinny, Jeff learned more then advanced drawing/paint skill. DeVinny imparted the importance of concept, research, and adaptability in illustration. By the time Jeff graduated in 2009 with his Bachelors of Fine Arts-Illustration, Jeff skills were well honed and he was comfortable using multiple medias, often at the same time, to produce his work.

Currently, Jeff is accepting freelance work in Illustration, Graphic Design, Murals, etc. In his spare time Jeff enjoys working on custom paint jobs for hockey masks, skateboards and snowboards while working at The Great Frame Up in Vernon Hills
