My Bio
I got my start drawing comics professionally in 2004 under the tutelage of Michael Turner at Aspen Comics. My first published work was pencilling Soulfire: Dying of the Light. Following this I worked on several series at Aspen, including Soulfire: DOTL, Shrugged, Dellec, Executive Assistant: ORCHID and most recently Idolized. I also drew a single issue for Marvel, Deadpool Team-Up #890. In 2011 I moved over to the animation industry and have worked as a storyboard artist for Film Roman on Ultimate Spiderman, for Nickelodeon on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles , Marvel Animation on the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, and I am currently a Director at Marvel Animation on Avengers. I love art, and bringing my vision to various creative ventures is my passion.

My friend and mentor passed away 8 years ago today. It was a day that I will never forget, as it was the only time in my life that I've ever had the misfortune of being in a hospital knowing that soon a close friend will pass. It's a very difficult thing and my heart goes out to anyone dealing with a similar situation. Mike, to me, was always this beacon of light, confidence, and strength, and to see him as he was at that time was tragic. But I knew that he left the world better off than it was when he came into it.  None of us know the day when we will take our last breath, but we all know that day will come. Please keep this in mind and l

It's not unusual for me to reminisce on the integral moments in my life, but the last few days I've been thinking more and more about all the different variables that have lead up to where I am today in my career.

They gained little if anything from helping me, whereas my life is completely changed because of their generosity. I can never repay them for what they've done, and if I'm honest, I haven't done as much as I probably should have to try. T

Hey all,  First off, I want to apologize for my lack of updates lately...I have been extremely busy and have not been able to sketch much.

Anyway, I've not given up on my sketches, and will be trying to post another set tomorrow. I appreciate all the support and comments you guys give, and it motivates me to continue providing you with
