PROFILE I am a story-driven artist, dedicated to creating art that is meaningful and aesthetically pleasing for the viewer. I have labored to become informed about story not only through art, but through narrative as well, by pursuing a masters in writing for children and young adults. This desire to learn and create motivates me to work well within a team setting because I have an appreciation for others’ contributions and a clear focus on the end result. In short, I understand that everyone’s cooperation and involvement is necessary to achieve success. I wish to be able to grow as quickly, proficiently, and effectively as possible as an artist. While I will bring years of work experience to my next position, I will also look enthusiastically at each project and assignment as a learning opportunity. I come ready to work hard, learn, and contribute in all ways that I can. EXPERIENCE LEAD ARTIST, THE WATERFORD INSTITUTE; SANDY, UTAH — 2009-2011 • Selected optimal character designs and environments from concept art and, using Wacom Cyntiq and Adobe Photoshop, developed 15 complete characters and more than 10 different environments for the pilot program Waterford Tales. • Managed and mentored interns during the summer internship program, including performance evaluations. • Created and completed eight 30-40 page comics from storyboard through layout to final polish. CONCEPT ARTIST, THE WATERFORD INSTITUTE; SANDY, UTAH— 2007-2009 • Working from limitations and expectations developed by the design team, created concept mock-ups for all the characters and environments for the Waterford Tales project. • Used Adobe Flash to create concept character mock-ups for a video game that implemented 3-D backgrounds with 2-D characters. • Used Adobe Photoshop to create concept environments for a steam-punk themed video game. • Designed and illustrated in-house newsletters to communicate the team’s current thinking on Waterford Tales, including detailed digital illustrations of characters and environments to foster discussion and planning. FLASH ARTIST, THE WATERFORD INSTITUTE; SANDY, UTAH — 2003-2007 • Created hundreds of clip art images according to a strict art style guide of shading, inking, and coloring. • Used Adobe Flash to create characters, environments, and animations for mini-games. HIGH SCHOOL INTERN, THE WATERFORD INSTITUTE, SANDY, UTAH — 1997-2000 • Used traditional drawing and painting skills to create picture books. • Created clip art and background images with Flash and Photoshop. EDUCATION UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY, LOGAN UT • BFA in Graphic Design, 2007 VERMONT COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS, MONTPELIER VT • Currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing in this low-residency, high-expectation program. • Instructors have included Newbery and National Book Award nominees. • Expected date of degree completion: July 2012. OUTSTANDING SKILLS AND PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES STRONG UNDERSTANDING OF STORY • My work in the VCFA’s Writing for Children program has given me an understanding of the whys and hows of storytelling that is rare among artists. • My Liberal Arts background, including substantial coursework in fine art, literature, history, and two years serving as an LDS missionary in Tokyo, lends unusual depth and resonance to my artwork. A MOTIVATED SELF-STARTER • I am always looking for ways to get better at what I do. An on-line comic series I maintained personally drew tens-of-thousands of hits and gave me further experience learning how to combine story and art. My pursuit of learning how to paint digitally led to winning the gnomon workshop challenge, with the prize of more then 15 DVDs in art education taught by top artists in the industry. This includes use in lighting, digital painting, comic book coloring, matte painting, character design, each one giving further insight and training. • In-service development at my last job included additional training in comic book layout, storyboarding, character design, and digital painting. • Winner of the $10,000 North American Adobe Imagination Challenge. https://students-adobe.com/NA/gallery/ViewEntry/353/Period2 LANGUAGES AND SOFTWARE • Near fluency in Japanese (speech); familiarity with German • Expert at Photoshop and Flash • Experience with Maya, Illustrator, After Effects, Sketchbook Pro, Corel Painter

Growing up in small town USA (aka Nokomis, IL) not only provided my childhood with endless amounts of boredom, but also time to address my urges to doodle, sketch, and color everything in sight, including my mother's bedroom walls. These frequent outbursts were soon tamed when I began participating in art classes, clubs, yearbook staffs and design teams throughout middle and high school. So when everyone else was taking the "big leap" and deciding what they were going to be when they grew up, I was already enrolled as a Graphic Design major at the local community college. An Associates degree in design and a few web/photography classes later, and I was loading up my car and heading to Eastern Illinois University. There I received a BFA in Graphic Design as well as a strong understanding in interactive & web design. Now...It's time for the real world and all the fun that comes with it. I am currently employeed at Systemax in Springfield, IL as a designer. At Systemax I am part of a small design team that not only provides the companie's clients with marketing and advertising solutions as well as branding services, but also handles all of the internal design work for Systemax itself.

Ever since I was 8 I've been obsessed with art and music. Even though that's where my heart was, my father was always down on my about playing sports and even though I was really good at it, I was miserable at the same time because I only did it because thats what he wanted. They say in life you can chose to do two things, what ever it takes to make your parents happy, and what ever it takes to make you happy. i choose to do art and do music to find my happiness not worrying about what no one thinks about the decisions I make in my life for once. I love art and thats what im going to do to make a living

Hi potential clients, I am an artist that takes my art very seriously and I have fun while I'm doing it. I am also a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to executing my work even though I know that perfection is impossible but something you strive for. I try to satisfy the customer and do the very best job I can. I treat each piece of work like a masterpiece within the given deadline time. I have experience and expertise in a number of artistic skills and mediums such as airbrush, pen and ink, charcoal, pencil, colored pencil, acrylic, oil, pastel, screenprinting , vinyl graphics and watercolor. I have been drawing and painting for 39 years now and I'm only 42. I also have been doing freelance work for a number of clients including schools, truckers, small businesses, organizations and personal clients. I also keep my artistic skills honed by constant drawing and sketching whether it be from life or photographs as well as from my memory and the most important part, studying and observation. So if you want to have some professionally rendered and beautiful artwork get in contact with me, I will be glad to render my services.
