After leaving the College Fine Art program in 1998, I dreamed of becoming a Rock Star & world-famous Painter. I had the image totally realized in my mind; I was going to be living in a huge spacious loft in a down-town New York high-rise, with giant windows and surrounded by enormous 8-foot tall canvases and oil paints. My band would be world famous and I would delve into my art to cope with the overwhelming pressures of being a rock n’ roll celebrity.|
Well, luckily for me, I was spared the pressures of becoming a Rock Icon. In 1999 I discovered computers and the wonderful world of Digital Art.
I began my design career back in 2000 creating interactive training modules for the oil and gas industry. By 2004 I was providing Art Direction for a local design company working on everything from web development, promotional print design, to animation. It was at this time I left this job and made the move to a full-time freelance designer. Some notable accomplishments during this time have been creating comics & illustrations for a magazine with a nationwide readership for 8 consecutive years, developing touch-screen poker games for a Las Vegas gaming company, and spearheading the corporate branding and marketing design for an agricultural company with products sold across the globe.
Aside from my regular design work, I also have much of my focus on creative projects combining illustration and photography with a pop-culture flair. I have published a few comic books in this style, teach workshops in digital editing, and exhibit my artwork at various comicons.
