I am very passionate about my work. I enjoy fantasy art the most,where my imagination is without limits. It doesnt happen often but when I see a picture that I think would be a challenge it makes me want to put it to the test! I'm into high quality/detailed comics,animation,oil painting,and sculptures I would like to get into prints because I have trouble letting go of my originals. I want to give computer graphics every bit of respect, but I still prefer the very much loved labor of a brush stroke,the layers of texture and the following satisfaction upon completion. From the basic to the most detailed; I am able to make your ideas visually shared for all to see!

I am an avid writer now working on two novels, as well as writing technical articles for multiple websites. Most of my writing covers physics, engineering, and technology (technically) while my novels are both masterpieces of fiction. I have a vast array of experience to draw from including time spent in the US Army Long Range Surveillance Detachment Special Operations Unit, over five years as a locksmith, and an organic chemistry degree from the University of Kentucky with an emphasis on natural product chemistry. I am now currently trying to make a living as a writer while also working as a locksmith in the Los Angeles area.
