Hello and welcome to my site. I live in Los Angeles, California with my wife, two very loud children, three barky dogs. I work primarily as a concept illustrator for movies and commercials.

I graduated with honors and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan where I grew up. Shortly after graduating, I was able to pry myself away from Detroit and move to El Segundo where I started working at Sony Pictures Imageworks. I did some storyboarding, visual effects design and art directing on such films as "Wolf", "Johnny Mnemonic" and "The Cable Guy".

Having gained a solid background in visual effects, I moved over to pre-production illustrating on movies. My current projects include "Insurgent" and "Ant-Man".

"Abigale the Happy Whale" is my first children's book.
