I grew up in NJ and I met my business partner at a very young age. In highschool I did pretty good but I had much more fun drawing picture so I decided to go to art school. My parents were really cool with it but my dad had this fear that I would wind up selling black velvet Elvis paintings on the side of the road. I tried my hand at the velvet paintings but wasn't very good at it. Luckily Gregg introduced me to the Interweb.
I studied drawing and painting in the days before the digital revolution. In 1999, I co-founded JibJab with my brother Gregg so we could hopefully make people laugh around the world. I spend a lot of time on computers these days but I still love to draw when I can. I also have another blog where I build funny little things. You can check it out HERE. Thanks for stopping by!
