Currently employed as a Lead Character Artist at Respawn Entertainment in LA. I was a former Lead Character Artist for Blur Studio. I’m a self-taught, award-winning digital artist with a burning passion to birth new, inventive concepts and characters and breathe life into everything I create. My work has been featured in film, games, cinematics, television, collectible figures, toys, trade shows, and a spread of cg art books and magazines across the globe. Clients and projects vary widely in an array of markets and include Blur Studio, Hasbro Toys, PCS Collectibles, Prime1 Studio, Tweeterhead, Studio ADI, NVIDIA, Axis Animation, Fox, Warner Brothers, Zynga, Autodesk, Daz3D, Visual Creatures, ReelFX, NBA Dallas Mavericks, Ryan Kingslien’s ZBrush Workshops, among others. I've been in the industry for 20 years. I've also been married for 20 years and I've successfully made three kids.
