About Matt

I began working professionally as an Illustrator while earning an Honors BFA in Cartooning from The School of Visual Arts. I've illustrated comic books for collections and anthologies from Moonstone, Zenescope, Dynamite and more. I provide high quality storyboards and illustrations to various advertising agencies and production studios.

I taught weekly classes at a visual art gallery and studio space called CREATIVE GENIUS, LLC in Medford, NJ from 2010-2012. I love to help students develop greater confidence in use of tools and ways of seeing.

I understand the needs of both novice and advanced students and am able to cater to both sets with equal focus. Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best,
M
