He is currently the resident artist on Nickelodeon TV (UK), drawing live and unscripted, and often with "art materials" that include everything from sausages to toothbrushes to TV presenters with luminous paint in their hair. He has a six year-old son Pearse, is married to Fumi, and has a house full of teen in-laws (who he loves dearly especially since realizing the importance of babysitters!).
