I have extensive training in research, literary analysis and criticism, copyediting, and creative writing technique, gained through the course of my university studies, from being vice president of a literary club, helping sift the slush pile of the Blue Mesa Review, and from being the Senior Editor of my high school's literary magazine. I am passionate about writing and am constantly trying to improve my skills, through attending workshops, conferences, and reading on my own in writing technique and modern literature. Currently I am working on a novel length piece of high fantasy with a science fiction twist, as well as a plethora of short stories, a few of which are currently under consideration.

I carry experience of concept art, comic books, and storyboarding in personal projects and partnerships; I've done special requests for murals, tattoo designs, and signs for organizations and individuals. I'm all about perserving through my work all day until it is a finished and exceptional marvel. I take my work very serious, but I remain the laid back guy with a sense of humor. "Perfection is impossible, yet you never stop advancing in pursuit of it." the same can be said of my art. Beyond that I wish to share it through the stories and moments I capture in my artwork.

Graphic design is such a great outlet of creativity. As with fine art I love watching my work grow and evolve to become a piece that I created. I enjoy finding new ways to incorporate my passion for fine art into my graphic design work. I recently saw a quote explaining the difference between art and design. It stated, "Good art inspires, good design motivates," my response is why not both? I want to create a world around me that is beautiful, motivating and inspiring not only to myself but to others.
