I grew up in an environment surrounded by art and entertainment. I was born in Jefferson City, Missouri, USA. While in high school I was classically educated in fine art as well as commercial art. After school I moved to Chicago to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. This unique background gave me a visual sense that is a unique blend between rural and urban.
My college took place at the Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg where I received training as both a traditional illustrator and digital concept designer and 3d modeler. This training gave me the skill set to efficiently come up with different solutions for each creative problem. Unlike most of the other concept artists who are focused in just one specific area. my skill set covers all different aspects of design. This includes not only character designs, but also environment concepts, prop concepts, and various visual developments and even graphic designs.
Since graduating from the Institute, I have been working as a contract artist both 2d and 3d and I am actively seeking full-time or freelance employment as a concept artist, 3d modeler, or graphic designer. I have worked with many clients in the past and I am a great communicator. Contact me if you have any projects that my services would benefit.
