Biography

Currently living in the city of Los Angeles, California, I work as a freelance illustrator/concept artist for various clients across various industries. Combining influences of nature, science/technology, and elements of fantasy I strive to create high quality artwork that is both exciting and thought provoking. Aspects I place emphasis on in my work are believability and functional design.

After graduating from art school in San Francisco 2.5 years ago I moved down to LA to start my career. Since then I’ve done work for a theme park project, illustrations for various mobile/social games, book covers, advertising, and commercials with future aspirations to work in the video game industry. My current focus is my personal projects particularly my project titled “The Big Five” which focuses on drone application towards anti-poaching efforts in Africa.

When I’m not drawing or painting I enjoy traveling abroad, building Japanese model kits, and playing video games.
