I am a 20-year member of the National Cartoonists Society and a member of the International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association. My work has been used by The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNBC, McGraw-Hill, HarperCollins, John Wiley & Sons, The Wine Advocate (on-line), Standard & Poor’s and many others. 

My cartoons are syndicated through, the largest cartoon syndicator on the Internet.

My first book, Gone With The Wine, published by W.A.G. Publishing, of South San Francisco, CA, was released in July 2009. In December 2009, it won the 2009 US Gourmand World Cookbook Award for wine illustration.

Four subsequent books: The Grapes of Laugh; Splattered on the Road to Wealth, Less Than A Full Deck and Pukka & Fremd, all released in 2011, were published by Mushroom Publishing (Bath, UK)

Samples of my work and testimonials may be viewed on my web site:

My wine cartoons are a regular feature on the on-line version of Robert Parker’s, The Wine Advocate (, the most highly trafficked wine-related site on the Web. They are also featured in The Juice, AZ Weekly Magazine and My Table.

I have an MBA from the University of Chicago, and obtained my art education at Rutgers University and Arizona State University. 

Besides art, my interests include astronomy, tennis, swimming and reading. I am a 24-year resident of Scottsdale, AZ, where I live with my wife and son.
