Summary

I've been a 2D artist in the video game industry since 2007, working primarily on casual games. My last published title was Rocket Arena, a AAA game for console and PC developed by Final Strike Games. More recently I was a lead artist at Tilting Point Games but I am now a freelance artist making art for various game projects. I've also dabbled in storyboarding, ceramics, and designs for 3 dimensional commercial projects. I enjoy learning, collaborating, and being able to do many different things proficiently.
