Exploring + Establishing + Executing different styles of world building as part of visual development or in fully rendered final images. 
I'm comfortable with designing/painting, modeling/sculpting, texturing, lighting/rendering, and compositing. Environments by any means necessary. 
Chasing my daughter, traveling with my brilliant wife, reading sci-fi books, doodling, sitting pensively on stairs, HBO, and consuming copious amounts of espresso all contribute heavily to my happiness and sanity.
I'm currently a Senior Creative Art Director for Wizards of the Coast, creating inspiring visual targets for video game IP from mobile to AAA.
