Summary

Eisner and Harvey Award nominated professional comic book artist with 9+ years of industry experience. I have worked for comic companies such as Penguin RandomHouse, DC, Image, Dark Horse, and BOOM! Studios.
As well as book illustration, card art, character design, and storyboarding for companies such as Mattel, Cryptozoic/Square Enix, and Harper Collins.

My artistic strengths include but are not limited to: Strong sense of visual storytelling, character acting, conveying emotion through gesture and staging, composition, perspective, anatomy, lighting, as well as adapting my own art to fit various styles for different projects.

I excel in fast paced creative environments under pressure and have excellent time management skills.

I also like to keep a healthy diet consisting of cartoons, anime, and comics.
