My Bio

I'm a storyboard artist with 2D animation background and with a childhood dream of doing comics. Currently I do storyboards for video games, helping find creative approaches to weave the right story-driven emotions within an interactive context. Beside spewing words to make what I do seem complex, my visual influences are of the comic book-animation-manga-gaming variety with interests in most visual storytelling fields including movies, tv, animation, video games, comics, illustration and anything on the side. Some of the strengths I often hear about my work is that it's expressive, dynamic, hits humor beats and tone right and it's just really fun. Does this sound like I was bragging? Please don't tell me this is bragging; I don't like to br--... Currently my personal goals are to slow down to improve on visual polish of my works, FINALLY find a style I want to stick with and explore, strike a healthier lifestyle balance with my work-related hobbies, and to just enjoy and appreciate the ride.


Current job : Storyboard Artist at Eidos Montréal - Square Enix

Storyboards so far: Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy; Shadow of the Tomb Raider; Rise of the Tomb Raider ; Deus Ex : Mankind Divided; Deconstructed; How It's Made; cancelled Bubble Gum Crisis live action film; Storm Hawks; Pérusse Cité (on one episode); a bunch of Nestlé cereal commercials for Pascal Blais; SuperBook; and more.

Current Residence: Canada (Montreal,Quebec)

A really nice gallery, your style is truly heartwarming(maybe it brings to mind some stuff from the 80' or even 70's) and it is also very well acquired and impressive!

Just wanted to ask you a question, if that's alright.

You art style is super cute! Do you take character requests at all?

Still not on the commission bandwagon after all these years. sorry. I know I should try but still trying to figure out life balance.

You've got alot of cool stuff here! Keep up the gooooood work!!

hi so I had to ask you about this concept a woman died and somehow became a sentient magic sword and along at some point got a body again but it's artificial body with some magic stones implanted inside to keep it fresh and alive and metal piece to place the sword and well the blade part can magically shrink to dagger size so it wouldn't cost any problems for the body and the hilt of the sword can magically turn into a head and so having a metal piece make it look like that she is wearing a metal collar around her neck. what do you think?
