Graphic novels, children's literature, animation and cinematography make up our modern mythology and I've always wanted to be a part of each one of them. In my never-ending quest to become an exceptional artist, I'll continue studying graphic art and later on, fine art, as time and circumstances will allow. Eventually, I hope my art becomes associated with epic and memorable works.
PAST PROJECTS INCLUDE: ● Storyboard artist for Mill Creek Films' upcoming independent feature, Outbreak
I wholeheartedly want to be one of the people that brings rare and imaginative stories to the public.
