About

I am constantly looking for creative projects and reasons to learn new creative skills. I have real experience in video production and motion graphics, but I’ve ventured into learning code, illustration, graphic design, photography, 2d game art, animation, pumpkin sculpting, special FX makeup and more recently… I’ve picked up inking (that I am hoping will feed into a larger vision down the road). The skills I collect from side projects have a tendency of making their way into my professional work and though varied, these elements feeding into each other, help keep me focused and passionate about projects I choose to work on.

I have spent my time through college studying dual degrees in Media Production and Marketing Management. Marketing allowed me to explore why and how imagery affects perception, while Media Production gave me opportunity to create and control the inner workings of what goes into various forms of media. My interests are diverse and I needed a place to keep them all contained. That is why I have created a space dedicated to my professional and personal creativity.

Creative Work. Creative Play

Divergent Poster Imitation

DrawQuest: Fill the Time Capsule

Here is another submission from my favorite way to turn extra time into creativity, the DrawQuest app. The quest was Fill the Time Capsule. My first thought when someone says “time,” is Time Lord, so drawing Doctor Who‘s TARDIS is really th...

Dragged by a Bear

I went on a trip to the pacific northwest last year, and it was one of the best vacations I’ve ever been on. Leading up to the trip, my mother kept telling me she was worried about my friends and I being attacked by bears. I told her that was ridiculous&...

Duck Invitation

A family member wanted me to create a Duck Dynasty themed birthday invitation for her daughter. Other than Duck Dynasty, I knew she liked the color blue and her favorite quote from the show: “Happy, Happy, Happy.” She is young, so i wanted to make...

DrawQuest: Adorn the Crown with Jewels

DrawQuest has been the best pastime for me. Everyday DrawQuest releases a new “quest” or challenge to complete a drawing they have already begun. I try to complete one now and then. This Quest was “Adorn the Crown with Jewels.” It start...

Walking Dead Style Imitation

  I am a HUGE The Walking Dead fan. I loved the dark and secluded imagery of their social media count down, leading to its fourth season premiere. When one of my friends posted an underexposed, but hilarious picture… I ran to Photoshop.   As yo...
