More About Me

Time to switch to a first-person narrative …

Like many others, art & drawing were fundamental in my life. I'd entertain myself for hours daily with paper, crayons, markers, & pencils. Little did I know design or illustration were things anyone could do to make a living.

Influenced by cartoons, comic books, & art from Nintendo video game manuals during the 90s, I try to inject a similar sense of energy & fun into my work.

When I am not dabbling in a project, I like to go to the gym, spend time with my family, & take weekend trips to Iowa City to watch the Hawkeyes.

Just a heads up: Due to company and client restrictions, I may not be able to display some work on my website. Please check my page on Dribbble to see snapshots of my more-current professional and personal projects.
