My Bio
Artist • Creative Director • Creative Strategist

I am an Artist and Creative Strategist who has developed marketing strategies and content for brands, studios and advertising agencies. Specializing in the entertainment industry, my ideas are brought to fruition through award winning art, design and writing that spans the gamut of content creation including videos, web series, short films, comic books, animation, and a plethora of other digital marketing experiences and their coinciding social media campaigns.

I used to work as the Creative Director at DeviantArt working to produce the daily art challenge APP, Sketch This and much more.

In the past I've been part of the team that created award winning content for Ridley Scott's marketing company 3AM, on films the Martian, Morgan, Concussion and Tim Burton's, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

In 2015 I created the CONSUME art series inspired by John Carpenter’s cult film, They Live. The series has been picked up by major news outlets and has become an internet sensation for its satirical take on modern society.

In 2011, I launched Gates, Heavy Metal Magazine’s first webcomic, as the artist, writer and producer of the comic book.

Sadly, I am reporting in that Sketch This appears to be dead in the form you all knew it as. When I left DeviantArt in October of last year, I was not asked to continue working on it. I did still see it continuing though. A lot of people have messaged about it and the answer is, I really don't know what happened. I loved Sketch This though and I consider it to be one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done in my career. To wake up very day and create challenges that inspire artists of all ages, career levels and skill levels, it was an absolute honor. Sketch This was a great tool and I hope it comes back in one form or another. I wis
