Summary

I've been working in the games industry as a freelance illustrator and character designer for about 4 years, working mostly on mobile titles while wearing many hats as a general artist. At times I've been tasked with creating 3D models, other times with animation rigs, but the bulk of my work has been character design, concept art and 2D asset creation. I currently work with Periodyc Studios LLC as a contractor, acting as their Art Director and Lead Character Designer for their flagship title "T Is For Guilty".

I've worked on a very diverse range of titles in my career, ranging from beat-'em-ups to party games to music and rhythm, and I've been asked to produce art in a very wide range of visual styles. My portfolio is a reflection of my flexibility and range, as well as my willingness to try new things and push my creative limits.
