I am an artist with a main focus in character design, concept art, and illustration, but I am always open to other forms of art like graphic design, web design, comic art, etc. I enjoy working with color and light to create images that express character and mood.

I graduated from the Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago with a BFA in Game Art and Design, and have worked for Midway Amusement Games LLC as a concept artist from 2007 to 2009.

I have also worked on numerous freelance commission projects. I enjoy designing, drawing, and painting in my spare time, and am always exploring the world for inspiration.
