I've been drawing since I could grip a crayon, and telling stories since I could make noises.
When at all possible, I prefer to do both at once :)
Making art that is meaningful to me while connecting with an audience on an emotional level is all I ever want to do. I love the shared experience of figuring out our own stories by telling them in pictures and through design.
I have a broad range of experience and interests- I love character design, cover art, illustration, and I even do a little podcasting & mentoring.
I love solving visual problems both large and small- and have been blessed with opportunities to establish strong visual identities for a number of products in a variety of styles.
Companies I've worked with include Disney, Dreamworks, Netflix, Hasbro, Blizzard, Guerrilla, EA Games, Riot, Axis, ReelFX, Mattel, Hasbro, 38 Studios, The Flight Anthology and many more.
Regardless of what I set my hand to, what matters to me most is the heart of the project.
And fun colors. I like those.
