To be an asset and resource for a multimedia based company, working with the illustration graphic team. To share conceptual ideas and creative views to improve visual aspects of designs and produce new features to an exisiting product such as MMORPG's and console game designs.

Summary

I am a dedicated individual to create visual arts to fulfill a clients request.  Leadership and communication skills keeping team motivated and focused on meeting team goals and deadlines. Enjoy being a part of creative team building designs and projects with artistic concepts and reliable functionality.

Self taught artist that works with coloured pencil, photography and digital image editing software such as, Adobe Photoshop as a hobby for several years. Worked as a import automotive mechanic and service manager for local facility. After an injury I had to change careers and saught an education to learn professional skills in the field I love designing multimedia projects, digital arts, web design and 3D animation.

As I continue to learn more skills and present software applications to create designs fully functional and artistic that illustrate the ideas and goals of each client. I am a motivated person that works hard giving everything I can into each project I am a part of. I do not like the idea of, "that can not be done", or "you can not do that."  I will strive that much hard to meet the goal set before me. If it means working harder or putting in extra hours, bringing in extra team members to gain insight or a different prospective to achieve the goal.
