I am a Creative, Directing, Accommodating Motivator who makes the impossible into the probable (as described by the Insights Discovery system. ) My top 5 Strengths are: Strategic, Maximizer, Ideation, Learner, and Connectedness.

I think of art as a type of "data visualization"​ which engages and transports the viewer. To me a game is an illustration co-authored by the player and it exists in its own universe. Even a single asset from a game should give tantalizing clues about the world it invites the player to join.

It's important to me to understand every team member's individual roles in a project. I seek to touch every stage of development and take any opportunity for cross training. That's why I prefer to work with programmers as well as artists. My ideal team is collaborative, leveraging the strengths of each person. I enjoy customizing my work to technical and stylistic challenges. It's like a game of making games.

I have illustrated professionally since 1996. I have contributed to 29 published games, 27 published books/albums, many editorial articles, websites, newsletters, and branding for businesses. I have experience ranging from traditional commercial arts to mobile gaming. My inventiveness and tenacious problem solving are an asset to my team.

Skills:
- Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Unity, Adobe Flash and UVW map texturing in 3D Studio MAX.
- Concept art, illustration, branding, marketing, web design, game design, journalism, data imaging, text and graphical content creation for a variety of media.
