I grew up in the colorful world of 8-bit video games and 1980s cartoons, building odd Lego structures that made no sense, and trying to beat my older brothers in video games. Since earning my degree in Studio Art from the University of California, Irvine, I’ve worked as an artist at Blizzard Entertainment, Riot Games, and Carbine Studios/NCSoft.  Currently, I am a freelance illustrator who works late into the night and tries not to drown my plants in sunny Southern California.  Occasionally, you can find me at a comic or anime convention selling my art!

On a more personal note, I am truly grateful to everyone who has supported me in this independent artistic endeavor of mine. Whether it be with follows/comments/shares/likes on social media, commissions, or buying my art prints, thank you so much. ❤️  Without your support, it would be very difficult for me to continue on this amazing, creative path.
