I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I have over 20 years of experience in the digital entertainment industry as a Concept/Visual Development Artist and possesses a wide variety of digital and traditional art skills.
I enjoy creating, developing, and establishing diverse art styles and design principles. I am classically/traditionally trained in painting and sculpting and able to successfully translate these skills the digital realm.
I have had the pleasure of working on some of the most notable franchises in the video game industry such as Mech Warrior 4, Dungeons & Dragons, G.I. Joe, the famed Halo franchise, and Ryse: Son of Rome.
I have a deep enthusiasm and love for the design process, like to collaborate with other creators, and enjoy the creative team environment. No matter the genre/style of game, my artistic skill/talents are an asset to the overall visual development process, from incubation to full production onto project completion.
Aside from creating concept art, I enjoy watching movies, screenwriting, spending time with his daughter, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, cooking, and home improvement.
