About The Artist

I hate writing these kinds of things…

Born in Houston, Texas, I grew up fascinated by space, dinosaurs and superheroes. Not much has changed.

Recently, I worked as the Creative Director for The Flyer Box Club at Keller Williams Realty, providing branding and marketing services for real estate agents, as well as guiding the company’s own look. Before relocating to Austin, Texas, I lived in Los Angeles, California where I worked as an Art Director at TEN: The Enthusiast Network on the company’s Motor Trend Auto Shows. I’ve previously worked as a graphic designer at Activision Publishing on the massively successful Call of Duty and Skylanders franchises, and Destiny by Bungie. In addition to providing in-game character illustrations and marketing materials for the cross-platform fighting game, Supremacy MMA, I am also an experienced comics writer/artist and painter. My comic book, The RISE, is now available on ComiXology.

I also dabble in music, love D&D and am identifiable as a British soldier in one shot of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.

If I were an animal, I’d be a monkey. I prefer The Beatles and Pearl Jam to The Rolling Stones and Nirvana. And Marvel to DC.

I have a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University, and was awarded the title “Most Artistic Boy” in my high school yearbook.
