I have been training in the art and 3D/gaming fields for over 20 years now. It all began with my love of comic book art and the comics industry. I opened up my own comic book shop and was going to be working for a new comic book company as a lead artist when I was around 17 years old. I was crushed when that company never came to light due to funding but I was determined to continue in the art industry. When I bought my first computer, my horizons broadened! I studied vigorously and taught myself many 3D art programs over the course of the past 15 years, and I never stop learning!

I am a very self-motivated hard worker. I can adapt well to new environments and look at every new situation as a personal challenge and as a chance to learn something new about my work and myself. Since I have been in the art industry for such a long time as an independent contractor, I am looking forward to being part of an in-house team. The chance to collaborate with other professionals on amazing projects is what I strive to do. I am very excited to be part of your team. I have worked with several video game mod teams and communicated via email and mIRC but I am extremely excited to work with other professional artists in a team environment. With so much talent at my disposal my skills can only increase and I am sure I have much to share and contribute!
