I've been making maps for 25 years. (Yes, that's before everything was done with computers.) In that time, I've created 5,000 maps: current event maps, historical maps, rainfall maps, political, physical and cultural maps. I've also done information graphics, earth science, life science and technical illustrations.

Over the years, I developed a technique with (modified) airbrushes I've since improved using high-tech tools.

Before maps and I found each other, I studied Art and Chemistry at Bard College and taught painting at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles. There, I made very flat paintings, I explored flatness. Currently, I work from my studio in South Orange, New Jersey where I live with my wife and two young daughters.
