I have been drawing quite literally since I could hold a crayon. I started off with coloring books in restaurants to keep me behaved but shortly began creating my own lines to color as I grew bored of the limited selection of coloring books available to me. I began drawing digitally in Microsoft Paint with a mouse then moved on to Adobe Photoshop with a drawing tablet. I later got a mobile tablet with a stylus meant for drawing and have been using that set up primarily since. I started with Sketchbook Pro, then moved on to MediBang Paint and now use Procreate primarily.
Sonic was my first artistic inspiration and has remained a big influence in my creative endeavors. Other childhood influences include Metroid, TY the Tasmanian Tiger, Star Fox, and Ratchet and Clank. More recent influences include Mega Man, Astro Boy, Destiny, Splatoon, and Legend of Zelda.
I started writing in middle school and have been creating charactersand their worlds ever since. I published a book in 2016 called MONSTER on Amazon Kindle (and paper back) focusing on an android and as a homage to traditional monster stories. I finally published the first book of my main story that I had worked on since High School this spring called BIOWEAPON Eclipse (also on Amazon). It went through many drastic changes over the years before becoming what it is today and I plan on it being a trilogy with possible future installments.
I want to be a game artist because video games have been such a big influence on my life. I also love creating characters and the worlds they live in.

Some secrets change the world.
It's the year 2220. Mars was colonized a hundred years ago but instead of becoming a second home to humanity, it became home to a race of genetically engineered animal-human hybrids known as therians from the Greek word for beast. These bioweapons were created by mad scientists patronized by third-world dictators on earth with the plan of using them as super-soldiers to conquer the blue planet. It did not go according to plan as their creations rebelled against them.
The Beast War, also known as the first interplanetary war, started in 2197 and lasted until 2200. The therians, now referring to themselves as the Chimera Regime, had attempted to invade earth for themselves. They were lead by Alpha Amarok Kron, a ruthless wolf-therian who believed that the strongest should rule. At first, the Chimera were winning with their superior strength, speed, and endurance. They also advanced and experimental weaponry left behind by their creators. The tide turned when earth began creating advanced battle androids, which were even stronger than the therians. A special ops team known as Eclipse was instrumental in dealing a critical blow to the Chimera Regime, banishing them back to Mars.
Marcus Valko is the android son to Masumi, an accomplished AI programmer and CEO of Valko Industries, a company she ounded with her late husband Audric, who was killed during the war. Marcus was unveiled five years ago as the world's first techno-organic android, the most human-like robot yet. Until now, Marcus had accepted this without question, but now he has discovered an armored battle mode that he was not told about and has run afoul the Chimera Elite, a special ops team lead by the Chimera Regime's heir, Randor Kron. He also discovers a mysterious fox-therian with the ability to shapeshift and pyrokinesis, abilities that normal therians don't have.
Who, or what, is Marcus really? Why are the Chimera Elite and the heir of the Chimera Regime interested in him? Who is this mysterious kitsune-like fox-therian and what is her part to play? Will Marcus like the answers he finds?
