As a kid, the only things I loved to do was to make art, and play my Super Nintendo. There was no way I was going to grow up to be a professional video game player (especially because I always had my next door neighbor bail me out of all the dungeons) so it was only fitting that I pursued a career in the arts. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been raised in the San Francisco Bay area where the populace is as diverse as it can get. My exposure to this diversity has directly impacted how I perceive the world around me and influences the art I make both consciously and subconsciously.
Professionally I had been leaning towards a career in the animation industry, possibly doing animatics, but fell into graphic design and print production after landing a gig as an intern at Deluxe Productions in 2005. I'm no longer their intern, instead I'm one of their in-house artists as well as their main production artist. Remaining in house has given me the opportunity to try out a lot of different techniques and build a set of practices that I base all of my work on today. Despite that I still constantly experiment with the techniques I've already put to practice which allows me to remain incredibly versatile.
Privately I work with a multitude of styles and mediums. Currently my favorites are more traditionally based india ink and oil paint. Non traditionally I've been dabbling in web design recently by coding entire sites by hand in rich text editors, and it's becoming somewhat of an obsession. I really don't think I'll ever settle on any one medium because trying new things is too much fun and because it's unlikely that I'll ever stop trying to become a better artist.
