Art is my passion; I love different mediums, themes, tools and techniques. The fates have deemed me an explorer. I am a wanderer, fascinated with each step of this mysterious journey.


Born: Flint, Michigan.

Working for 20 years in commercial art, primarily entertainment and games/VR, I have contributed to projects in multiple studios in North and South America and Europe. I live and work in Wiesbaden, Germany.

I’m currently working on a side project here:

Whatever compels my passions is to me unknown. As a child my motivation was to draw better than my cousin. In my travels, I’ve realized that creative works are broadly a result of time and place. Russian philosopher and literary critic, Mikhail Bakhtin, used the word, Chronotope to describe configurations of time and space represented in language and discourse. I believe this inescapable fate influences creators more than we admit. Keeping this in mind, my goal is not to forge a path outside of these trappings but to acknowledge them. I’m interested in exploring myths and icons that time has forged into themes. My compulsions are but a ghost to me, to paraphrased Socrates, “I know that I know nothing.”

There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says “Morning, boys. How’s the water?” And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes “What the hell is water?”
