Where do you serve?
Baltimore, D.C., and surrounding areas.
What type of entertainment do you provide?
I’m a Caricature Artist…probably the best I’ve seen! 🙂
How long have you been in the business?
I started doing Caricatures in 2004 and then stopped when I joined the Navy in 2006. I just picked up the marker again this past January, so 3 years total, but a period of 6 years.
How did you get into the entertainment business, specifically caricatures?
I started doing caricatures after graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Since I only had an associates degree, I realized that I had no chance in the animation field. My interest was also waning. So, my career counselor found a job for me doing caricatures at the Pittsburgh Zoo.
What’s your favorite type of event?
I love working company picnics. Watching the politics unfold, and seeing all the workplace personalities…it’s hilarious.
What’s your most memorable event?
Chick-Fil-A, the parents were insane, and it ran late. Oh, and there was the kid that totally beefed [complained the whole time] while in the chair.
What’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said about your work?
When people say that they love a drawing…it’s awesome, but to me the biggest compliment is when you hear the giggles and laughs coming from the crowd behind you, and the explosion of laughter when the model finally sees it. That, to me, is the nicest thing.
