Hi everyone! Thanks for visiting my online portfolio! I'm an illustrator based in Danville, CA. I am also a computer technology teacher at a small, private school for grades TK through 3rd.
I had a very interesting childhood. My brother and I were involved with film at a very early age. Our dad got us an 8mm film camera, and our love of film grew from that. We were both very much into Star Wars, monster movies, cartoons, super heroes, comic books, art and music. (We weren't very sporty kids.)
A goal of mine was to work for an animation studio, and in 2008, I was hired at PDI/Dreamworks in Redwood City. I feel very fortunate to have worked with so many amazing artists on so many great films. (My favorites being "How To Train Your Dragon" and "Megamind".)
I am happy to be working towards my next dream job, and that is to be a Children's Book Illustrator. With "Mission: CONTROL!" completed, I have a few smaller projects I'm working on before Author Nan Arkwright and I start working on the further adventures of Joseph and Gretchen in the trilogy "The Badges of Power".
From this point forward, I'll be at my desk, drinking lots of coffee, listening to music, talking to my dog Frankie, and creating new drawings and stories for you to enjoy! Thanks for your support!
