About me...

Art is where my heart is and always will be. 

Ever since I can remember I've been doing art in one form or another.  Back in the day, I went to art college for design but later on I focused on illustration. When I finished art school I was kinda burnt out and so I took a variety of odd jobs and eventually became an in-house illustrator with a local publisher. After a while it became obvious that they needed a designer more than an illustrator so I taught myself how to use the computer. A few years later I moved to Australia where I got a job as a part-time illustrator/designer. That eventually morphed into a full-time design/studio manager position which, once again, took me further away from painting. Six years later, I moved back to Canada and took another design day job whilst honing my artistic skills in the evenings and on weekends. Eventually I got laid off from 'the day job' and decided to just go for what I wanted. After a busy 6 months hustling and networking I landed a concept artist position with a local indie game company. After a couple of games and apps I became the art director and ended up being in charge of all thing's visual for the company. In 2013 the studio dissolved and we all ran for the hills. I went back to 'the day job' and made a commitment to myself that this time I was going to get somewhere with my art which has resulted in the pieces you see on this new website.

Other than art I love fedora hats, traveling, single malt whiskey, playing guitar and watching movies. I workout and recently discovered yoga which has helped me to limber up from all the hours sat in front of the computer! I live in Vancouver, Canada with my beautiful wife.
