I entered Art College as an aspiring artist, left after 2 years to work as a graphic designer. I worked for publishing and advertising companies in the United States, and England. Years later I returned to Canada and completed my fine arts degree. After university I focused on my painting and started to work at The Art Gallery of Harbourfront, then The Power Plant Gallery in Toronto. I later became a teacher for the Toronto District School Board so that I could continue to support my painting.
