I was born in Los Angeles but grew up in Orange County. I’m Italian, my mother is an immigrant from Milano and like all good Italians I ate pasta most nights (every night). In return, it gave me an immunity to gaining weight off carbs.

I love sports, playing video games and staying active. My passion growing up has been in animation, illustration and design. Some of my biggest influences are Masashi Kishimoto, Jim Lee, Massimo Vignelli and Otl Aicher.
