I’m an artist in the metro-Philadelphia area and an Armstrong State University alum. I graduated in December 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts. Most of my professional work is graphic design or website design related work, though I do an extensive amount of illustration in my free time. I am currently Creative Director at Pyramid Group Management Services, but feel free to check out my resume or contact me. I do graphic design for print or web (particularly logos, business cards, signs, etc), websites, and illustrations. Respectfully, I do not do political or religious oriented projects – my work is strictly commercial or educational oriented.
Creativity-wise, I have always been into drawing, and also developed a love of reading and writing from a very early age. This all stems back to my love of stories in virtually any way, shape or form – and it should be no surprise that I am a huge fan of the Canadian company BioWare for their often compelling storytelling through the video game medium. Ever since I was a young child, I have worked on countless stories and illustrations. I love fiction, history, and cultural/social studies, all of which play a big part in my personal work. I focus the most on character design and creation in my own artistic endeavors, and greatly enjoy coming up with character concepts of many different backgrounds and settings. I also love drawing other people’s character concepts, and am always eager to design or illustrate characters for others.
In addition to my artistic abilities, I have roughly 18 years of experience with web design and technological skills. I grew up around computers and am very comfortable with their use: I understand far more than the average user and know enough to solve common problems, recognize basic programming trends, and built my current desktop computer from scratch. Though I’ve a preference for Windows platforms, I also use and have extensive knowledge of Mac OS X and have some experience with Linux platforms, Android and iOS.
During college, I created Flash Tutorials for my university’s Information Technology department during their Integrating Information Retrieval into Undergraduate Curricula project. I also interned in Summer 2008 at Cisco’s Creative Media Services in their Metro-Atlanta offices. My online comic, Rune Master: Tales of a Demon Slayer was displayed during the Monsters of Webcomics exhibit at the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum in 2009. Rune Master was also featured in the Lookin’ At Comics column of the October 2008 issue of Knights of the Dinner Table.
I am currently working on a tabletop game with some friends called Waracle. Its project website can be found here.
