Professional illustrator/storyboard artist/comic artist living in Los Angeles, CA. Always had an interest in drawing and film since childhood. Drew my own comics and made little animated super-8 films with my twin brother growing up in Sacramento, CA. Went to The Academy of Art/USF in San Francisco. Started working at George Lucas' visual effects company Industrial Light & Magic around 1988, right out of school. Stayed there for 13 years, doing art for feature films and commercials including Ghostbusters 2, The Mask, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Men In Black, The Mummy. Left the Bay area for greener pastures and headed for Los Angeles on that fateful day of 9-11, dragging my girlfriend with me. After becoming a freelancer, I worked on Terminator-3, The Day After Tomorrow, The Chronicles of Riddick, Bolden, The Incredible Hulk, G.I. Joe 1 & 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Comics projects: Back-up stories in Marvel's "Agents of Atlas #1," and "Hulk Family #1." Appeared in small press anthologies "Zowie Deux," "Komikswerks: Thrills and Chills," "Secret Identities," "The Adventures of Unemployed Man," "Bela Lugosi's Tales From The Grave." Put together several self-published comics including "Babes In Space" anthology (featuring several ILM and Pixar artists); a sketchbook called "Striking Works" and a mini-crime comic "Art of Crime."
