BIO:

As a kid, my dad was in the military, which means I grew up on the move, from North Carolina to Hawaii. After high school, I spent some time as an electronics technician in the Air Force. This was not for me, I wanted to be an illustrator and it was time I did something about it. Four years later, I graduated in the spring of 2013 with a BFA in Studio Art, emphasis in painting and drawing, from the school of Art and Design at WSU. I currently live near Wichita, Kansas with my wife and two boys.

I am a draftsman, painter and illustrator, whether working in traditional mediums or digitally, utilizing Windows/Macs and Wacom digital tablets (Intuos and Cintiq). I am adept with Adobe Photoshop and quite skillful with Illustrator. When painting, I like to start with loose gestural sketches, using Wacom Cintiq or traditional pencil on paper. I work the compositional elements of  forms and value, before tightening the illustration’s details.
