I was born and raised in Ohio and attended John Carroll University as a Political Science major. After some heavy soul searching, I decided to forego my last semester and move to Los Angeles to pursue a lifelong dream of creating art for a living. I put together a portfolio and shortly after, was accepted to Pasadena ArtCenter College of Design.
After going through the first 6 semesters, I decided to pursue my childhood goal of drawing comics. So I left ArtCenter to start a working studio with fellow. Not long after, I was able to draw for companies like Top Cow Studio, Playstation Magazine, and Image comics.
Comics led to plenty of opportunities in other areas of art. Soon, I branched out to work as a character designer for Platinum Studios, as an illustrator and a storyboard artist for Vis Dev for Warner Bros.
After being inspired by some of the great digital painters and concept designers, I decided to go back and finish my ArtCenter degree. I graduated December of 2006 and began work at Disney Interactive Studio in January to start my career as a concept designer. And then I joined TarantinDream, as I discovered that almost no company in the world has such a rare vision. The works of art that are crafted at TarantinDream belong to the masterpieces’ hall of fame.
