While majoring in fine art at Long Beach State, Roger landed his first paid mural project for a local clothing shop. Upon being paid by the happy owners for "a job well done," and adding up all the hours worked, he concluded that murals would be no way to make a living!

After finishing college Roger founded Mural Environments, Inc. (MEI), a unique company which specializes in the design and execution of murals for hospitals and healthcare facilities.

MEI focuses on children's environments for the health care industry. Having created murals in many of the major hospitals in the LA area, Mural Environments strongly believes in the healing value of art.
