About Me


I have been an artist and designer for over 20 years.  I currently work in-house for a game company and I am looking towards developing my own projects.

I’m an artist, illustrator, graphic designer and teacher. I do artwork for advertising, games,books, packaging and identity design. I have a passion for the human figure, so naturally, my work is mostly about people, characters and likenesses. I really enjoy working in most traditional media, my favorites being oil painting and a combination of watercolor and gouache, but most of my commercial work is now done digitally, using programs such as Photoshop and Painter. This enables easy changes and quick turnarounds, as well as delivery over the internet.

Most of my full-time jobs have been in-house doing web design and branding. I taught drawing and digital painting classes at the Art Institute of Las Vegas for several years. This environment enabled me to stay sharp with the latest technology and software as well as help students find their own visual voices.

I graduated with an MFA in Animation/Visual Development from Academy of Art University in 2013. I taught classes in the Spring and Fall of 2014 at University of Nevada Las Vegas.

I enjoy ballroom dancing, tennis and building computers from the ground up. I like putting all the parts of the machine together myself, including the system that I am using to write this.

Feel free to ask me anything.

Thanks for visiting.
