“All the truth in the world is held in stories.” - Patrick Rothfuss, Wise Man’s Fear
I believe that the stories we tell are more than just mindless entertainment, they shape our world and ourselves. With this in mind, I always approach my work with respect for the craft and for those who contribute to delivering it.
I work with digital painting, traditional drawing, photo-manipulation and 3D skill-sets My interests also lie in environment design, color theory, creative writing, and photography.

Along side illustration, I am the co-founder and creative director of the creative health company, Atvolve. We Believe your body and your brain are just as important to creative output as the development of your craft. We focus on fitness, nutrition, tensions relief, mindfulness, and health coaching for individuals and teams. My goal is to spread the word on this subject, as I feel it is often an overlooked component to artistic production. You can learn more by visiting my blog, as well as our website https://www.atvolve.com/.
