I have held roles as a Sr. Art Director, Creative Director, and Sr. Copywriter with advertising agencies in Oregon and California. I am currently living in Orange County, CA, working for a small film company. I enjoy doing writing as my main source of income, though I have a great deal of experience as an illustrator (packaging, mostly). My screenplays have placed in contests, and excerpts (of novels) have been published online and in print. Thanks for looking at these samples. I'm very fast and fun to work with.

I'm a illustrator and painter, with projects varying from intricate hand drawn illustrations to painting large scale murals. From a young age I loved putting pen to paper, creating marks on anything I could, from drawing on walls to the back of used envelopes. I expresses myself through the creative potential of lines and ink, from the boldness and intensity of thick black lines to the most delicate detail, and the infinite layers in between, in patterns that can begin and end in whichever way I like. My work is an abstract form of what I see, feel, experience and dream. My work possesses a distinctive style, displaying a fluidity of movement inspired by animals and the natural world.
