Artist Bio

Once upon a time, as far back as I can remember, I had this deep down desire to work for Walt Disney's company. Luckily I inherited some of my father's artistic talent so I decided I would pursue a career in art. And what better place to work than at Disney?! Thanks to my parents and my wife Marian's encouragement, I never gave up on my dream. One day Marian suggested that we just take the risk and move to Orlando. We quit our jobs, sold our house and headed to Orlando with our two children. The first couple of months were the toughest until I finally got "my foot in the door" when I showed several drawings to the Character Art Manager at Walt Disney Attractions Merchandise. I began doing character art on a free lance basis. Although I was doing what I truly loved, I felt like an outsider. I still wasn't an employee of Walt Disney's company. Finally on December 6, 1993, I achieved my life-long dream by being hired on as a Senior Character Artist at Walt Disney Attractions Merchandise!
