I started in graphic design for print and broadcast. After subsequent work in web design, I joined the California National Guard, then worked as an animation instructor before freelancing as a production artist.
After military deployment, I worked as a graphic designer, then as an occluded surface reconstruction artist for stereoscopic conversion. After completing work on three feature films, I worked as a matte artist and trainer for matte painting, life drawing, and texture art for visual effects and animation.
At present, I continue to work freelance as a graphic designer and illustrator for comic books, storyboards, and concept art.
