I am an artist currently living in Austin, Texas. Prior to that I worked as an illustrator and concept artist in San Diego, California. Most of my work has been in the video games industry, but I have also done work for comic book publishers, role playing games, trading card games, and film and tv design. I have also authored two art instruction books.

In 2010 I was diagnosed with ALS, which is a degenerative neuromuscular disease with no known cause or cure. It typically leads to total paralysis and eventually death from respiratory failure. When the disease took my arms and hands, I spent some time learning to paint on my iphone with my big toe. Eventually even this stopped being an option. With the help of an extremely technically savvy friend I was able to obtain a custom built computer setup that is controlled via eye gaze. This new system allows me to use tools such as sketchup and Photoshop to create artwork.
