I was born into a creative family where I learned an appreciation for art and music from an early age.  I've always been fascinated by the stories that can be told by the most mundane or unrefined objects and the rooms that they're in.  This, along with my love for film and television led me to Broadview Entertainment Arts University, where I got my BFA in Entertainment Design.  I bring my love of history, architecture, design, and painting together to help give life to stories, using my background with painting and sculpting along with digital tools like 3d modeling and digital matte painting.       

I think that there is an artist in everybody, and that the value in creating is found mostly in the process, and not just the final product.

"In painting, you have unlimited power.  You have the ability to move mountains.  You can bend rivers. But when I get home, the only thing I have power over is the garbage." -Bob Ross
