Description:
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and currently reside in a suburb just outside of town. While earning a BA in art from Penn State University, I learned to work in traditional as well as digital mediums. Drawing inspiration from such artists as H.R. Giger, Michael Whelan, Norman Rockwell, and Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Waterson, my favorite subject matter ranges from sci-fi fantasy art, to cartooning, to animal and human portraiture. I am currently employed as a full time graphic designer for one of Pittsburgh's most innovative companies, Davison Design in their Inventionland.  Here I work with a design team that helps many corporate clients develop new and unique products.  My tasks include package design, product display design, and virtual boards of product prototypes, as well as other design related jobs. Prior to that, I worked as a full time concept artist for a giftware company, executing product design and development, initial thumbnail concept sketches, technical drawings for product specifications, instructional sheets for product assembly, logo and package design, and computer generated renderings of final products.

I have also done and continue to do freelance work for publishing companies and personal clients.  I also work as a musician, performing and recording as a drummer and percussionist.

Specialties: Computer generated graphics and art, logo design, packaging design, technical drawings, cartooning and sci-fi/fantasy illustration
