About Me

I'm an Art Director, Illustrator, and Game Designer. I've worked with a broad range of national clients on a host of projects mostly in the interactive experience and gaming spaces. Drawing, painting, and gaming are my hobbies, but my passion is in working with a team to create experiences that look magical and feel effortless.

I did two years of traditional fine art studies at ECU's School of Art and Design. I then switched focus to psychology.

In addition to my art background, my studies in psychology give me valuable insights when designing user experiences, and building teams.
