He was educated as a visual artist and worked in graphic design. He began trying to break into cartooning, but it was only in 1992, when he moved to Moncton and began to self-syndicate his cartoons to newspapers. Norbert Cunningham an editor at the Moncton Times Transcript purchased a number of his cartoons which Peter Simpson an editor of the Saint John Telegraon Journal saw and hired him as a regular contributor in September 1995.
