I am a concept artist, illustrator, games designer and educator, not always in that order and rarely at the exclusion of the others.
No matter that job I perform or part of my life I enjoy it is problem solving that is at the heart of it. Be that solving a visual puzzle for a client, trying to fill that hole in my sketchbook, figuring out how to explain negative space to a deaf person when I don’t know the sign for silhouette, or developing the consequences for my RPG players who drew genitalia on the demonic summoning ritual.
I have experience working on designing and illustrating educational books and games, creating concept art for fantasy and science fiction, as well as walking long distances without an shoes.
