Over the past few years, I'm lucky to have collaborated with a handful of talented artists and animators from around the industry. As a self-employed artist, I've been able to broaden my skills and take on many types of responsibilities that I wouldn't normally be exposed to while working at a studio.
I'm now looking forward to returning to work with a dedicated team to create video games, where I can continue to grow as an artist and share the unique experiences I gained as an artist on the Steam Workshop.
I graduated from The Guildhall at Southern Methodist University in 2009 with a Master of Interactive Technology and a Bachelor of Fine Art from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 2008.

Produced character, environment, and concept art for an unannounced project.
As an environment artist at Gearbox, I create in-game models, textures, materials, and high poly models. I've also been responsible for creating color variation skins for characters, head customizations, some marketing screenshots, model re-working/retexturing, and optimization of a wide variety of assets in both Borderlands 2, its DLCs, and Aliens: Colonial Marines.
