About

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my online portfolio!
The goal of becoming a professional visual artist has best defined me my entire life. I've worked in various media over the years, but Illustration is my best developed skill. In December 2009, I completed the Game Art and Design program at the Illinois Institute of Art Chicago. My time there has gone a long way toward strengthening my concept development and 3D modeling skills; now I am looking to prove to myself what I can do as a creative professional.

So far, I've had the privilege of designing a cast of characters for an as yet unpublished childrens' book, and various commissions for drawings of established characters from cartoons and comics.

I am looking forward to opportunities to work in a variety of creative capacities. Whether contributing my love of comic art to a position as a comic or storyboard artist, or challenging my design skills with character and/or environment development, or putting my 3D modeling skills to the test in either asset production or illustrative projects, I will give as much as I can, while taking every experience as an opportunity to grow into a more competent and efficient artist.
