Raised in a condemned building in Philadelphia by two artists, Devin was well equipped for future success. Exposure to his mother's stash of 70's underground comics at the tender age of 11 left Devin both mentally scarred and perpetually inspired by the potential of visual narratives. From then on he could always be found either drawing comics or reading them, the stranger the better. He further explored his love of time-based media as a video art major at Syracuse University. There, he challenged the confines of the format by injecting his bizarre sense of humor into his art. Most notably in his noir-inspired video, SLAP, featured at the Institute for Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, in which a faceless figure slaps him in the face for 5 continuous minutes. He also continued in comics with his debauched strip Hasa Basa for Syracuse University's Daily Orange Newspaper.
Heading to New York City, Devin cut his teeth producing video content for the new media company Wavesystems. As a freelance designer he has been involved with a broad range of projects including work for HBO, MTV, Comedy Central, TCM, and The Cartoon Network, applying his design and narrative skills to everything from network graphics to traditional cartoons. His films and animation have been featured in Stash Magazine, Animation Block Party, Rooftop Films, Ottawa Film Festival, Platform, Atom films, and BDA. In late 2007 Devin produced the animated web series 5ON for Comedy Central. This horror-comic inspired series was the creative seed that grew into the world of UGLY AMERICANS, his original animated TV show on Comedy Central. Devin is presently acting as Executive Producer and Director on UGLY AMERICANS, which is now going into its third season.
