About

Welcome to my website!

I've been creating art professionally for over ten years. I chose this profession because I love telling stories and creating characters. I love creating the worlds these characters live in and I find it very fulfilling that others also enjoy the things I create. Ultimately, I want to tell meaningful stories that make a difference and influence people's lives. . . but for now I don't mind drawing aliens, monsters, and guys with cool looking swords!

I work as a concept artist and illustrator. I grew up on the mean (not really) streets of Canton, Michigan. After graduating from the College of Creative Studies in Detroit, I took a job as a product designer at the Franklin Mint in Pennsylvania. Then I worked as a freelance illustrator for several years before trying my hand at concept art for Raven Software in Wisconsin. Currently I reside in the Seattle, WA area where I work as a senior concept artist for Motiga

I share my life with my lovely and talented wife Emily, also an illustrator (e-figart.com), our two crazy rabbits, and a bunch of silly little guinea pigs.

Enjoy the site!
