Description:
I inked, for several years, with a studio that produced numerous Marvel titles such as Ultimate Spider-man, Ultimate X-Men, (Adjective-less) X-Men, Fantastic Four, Bishop, and many more.  We also had a handful of DC, and the occasional Image, projects.  As such, I am familiar with a deadline driven lifestyle.  My professional experience was primarily pen and ink, but I have recently returned to school to expand my horizons and skill sets.
 Now that school draws to completion I seek a return to a career in art, though not necessarily exclusive to inking.  I have a strong familiarity with Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator.  I have used Maya to some small degree.  Though my professional work was inking, I can also pencil.  Stylistically, I can run the gamut of cute children's book illustration to the nasty horror realm.  Of late I have also developed a strong interest in sculpture.  
 In short, I am a professional in search of new opportunities and challenges to grow as an artist.
