I have 10 years of digital art experience specializing in 2D characters, concepts, and illustrations. Besides 2D illustration, I am also versatile in 2D/3D animation and design. I live in Washington and hold a Bachelors degree with the Herberger Institute of Design. I believe in being prepared and professional about serious things, but love to be a ridiculous nerd about anything else.
