I began my college education as a digital artist in 2005, having been an amateur painter for several years. During my schooling I was offered an internship by the founder and president of New American Standard Motion Picture Company.
I began my two-year internship at NAS MPC as a production assistant on the set of their submission for the 48-Hour Film Project. During these years I was a project storyboard artist, designed animation graphics, and soon became lead production assistant.
From late 2009 until 2015 I partnered with storyboard artist and inker/embellisher Johnny Beware Gerardy as a color artist.
Today I am lead designer at a marketing firm, and an active founding member of the San Diego artist group, Accidental Aliens.
