About Me

MY STORY

I grew up drawing traditionally from as far back as I can remember. I always seemed to have a pencil and paper in my hand. I drew a lot all the way through high school, but after graduating I basically stopped. I focused my energy on crafting my graphic design skills. I went to college and graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Visual Communications. I continued working as a graphic designer full-time. 

And for about 14 years I barely drew anything. But in 2015, I found myself amazed and inspired by all the digital artwork I saw online and on Instagram. To the point I wondered if I could ever produce artwork like that. So I finally walked into a Best Buy and bought a Wacom Intuos in Sept. 2015. I immediately fell back in love with drawing, and in early 2016 I got a Wacom Cintiq 13HD. And that was the tablet I used until it was replaced with a larger Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 in Dec. 2019.

I started drawing digitally as just a hobby, to simply have fun when I had extra time. And to see how my traditional drawing skills would translate to drawing digitally. Fast forward to the present and now the "hobby" has become a "business." How I wish I would have bought a Wacom Tablet years ago! Haha. Oh well. We can't change the past, only our present.  

Currently I work as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. I've worked with many different clients over my career. From Warner Bros. Ent., In-N-Out Burger, Habit Burger, SU2C, Lego, and Food Network to name a few.
