Artist and Cartographer with 7+ years of experience. I have worked as a Freelancer on internationally published Games and Books for companies such as Square Enix, Fantasy Flight Games and Paizo.

I love to bring worlds to life through my detailed maps and lively paintings and I'm always looking for new challenging projects!
