I grew up in the Midwest and currently live in Arizona. I've been drawing since childhood and my illustration skills have been utilized in creating TV storyboards and animatic art, comic book art and stories, and character designs and screen and cover concepts for a role playing game. Using Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Flash, I've designed publications, signage, marketing collateral, and animated banner ads. As an 2D assistant animator, I did character animation, clean-up drawings and in-betweening on 60-second title for Fox TV’s Spiderman and game versions of The Tale Of Peter Rabbit and other Beatrix Potter books. For CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), I created concepts and produced life-sized figurines for a traveling exhibit.
