My Bio
I launched a small desktop publishing company in 2007, Relentless Publishing, LLC, and have a boxed edition RPG publication credit. Currently I am working on a variety of titles from board games to combat strategy games. As and artist I dabble in mixed-media, able to do some illustrations and digital artwork for my publications. As a small business I occasionally seek contractors with a style (and price point) that matches my needs or interests.

I have been employed as a graphic artist in a variety of fields including law (personal injury, premises liability, vehicle torts, medical malpractice, sexual abuse), government contracting (training course ware, US Navy), marketing (corporate image, branding, advertising), package design, book covers, conceptual design, product development, civic and charity work, photograph reconstruction, and a handful of other tasks and jobs. On the side I enjoy kitbashing and scratch model building; a different artistic use of my hands. I have turned this hobby into a side business.

COMMISSIONS:
I have just begun work on my eleventh commission project and have secured the spot for #12. I am still reviewing any interested commission requests to add to my cue for 2019, however.

OMG! I never knew you had a deviantart page! I've been following your work since I found your homestead page years ago. Your creations have always blown my mind. It makes me sad I gave up my old collection after I graduated high school, but i'm glad to see you're still going strong in your custom work!

I've been really behind this year, but I DO continue to plink away at my stuff. It always makes me happy to hear that my work inspires someone... I think a big part of the Zoids community that many of us are missing was the old forum-based boards where annual custom contests drew dozens to hundreds of entries and many people gave constant feedback to the creators. I've gone pro in many ways, but in many others I miss the old days. ^_^

hey i don't know if you remember me but you helped me get through some hard times in my life by show me that someone out there gave a crap to listen to me.

i wanna thankyou i was later diagnosed with depression which lead to anxiety. you words helps me push through and get to a better place, and you were right there will always be hurtles and people that are no good but will keep fighting

Thank you for your kind words! I still have to watch my spirits; I can still fall into depression very easily. We need to remember that there is still help and support for us out there, but when we stand at the bottom of the well it can be difficult to see it.

hello. I love your zoid creations and look forward to what you might make next. I have tried to reach your website but have found that I can not get on. Is there a problem with the website or is it down for good? I hope it is the former and not the latter as I would like to see it.

Let me double-check my link... this one seems to work:

My next custom is a Puertasaurus! I haven't done a sauropod custom before, so it should be a great experience!

I am currently beginning Commission #14 and am opening my cue for my 15th custom Zoid. You can post a note here or you can submit a query at my FaceBook page:
