After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design, I moved to New York City and began my career as an illustrator. Fortunately my oil paintings have appeared in many national publications, books and projects for design firms/advertising agencies. Clients include Rolling Stone, The New York Times, TIME, Scientific American, Macy’s and Penguin/Random House Books. Currently I also show my original paintings in various galleries throughout the US and teach once a week at RISD and SVA. I live with my wife, SooJin, and mini-pinscher, Sota.
