I have contributed to over 17 published games, illustrations for more than 24 published books and albums, branded several businesses and have been illustrating professionally since 1996.

I see illustration as a type of data visualization which engages, inspires and educates the user. I like to combine archetypes and story with concepts like evolution, bio-mechanics and physics in order to create concepts which suspend disbelief. I endeavor to create fanciful or idealized imagery that is firmly grounded in science and reality. My top 5 Strengths are: Strategic, Maximizer, Ideation, Learner, Connectedness.
