Summary

Gamers​ ​want​ ​to​ ​feel​ ​something​ ​when​ ​they​ ​play.​ ​They​ ​want​ ​characters,​ ​worlds,​ ​and experiences​ ​that​ ​actually​ ​move​ ​them.​ ​My​ ​job​ ​is​ ​to​ ​make​ ​this​ ​happen.

Fueled​ ​by​ ​a​ ​childhood​ ​passion​ ​for​ ​video​ ​games,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​cultivated​ ​a​ ​decade​ ​of professional​ ​experience,​ ​technical​ ​ability,​ ​and​ ​software​ ​expertise.​ ​I​ ​excell​ ​in​ ​a​ ​variety​ ​of​ ​styles, from​ ​the​ ​cartoonish​ ​Skullgirls,​ ​to​ ​the​ ​caricatured​ ​realism​ ​of​ ​Heralds​ ​of​ ​Chaos,​ ​and​ ​the “prog-rock,”​ ​comic​ ​book​ ​sci-fi​ ​of​ ​StarBreak.​ ​No​ ​matter​ ​what​ ​your​ ​project​ ​entails,​ ​I​ ​can​ ​produce technically​ ​sound​ ​and​ ​aesthetically​ ​appealing​ ​work​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​your​ ​ambitions.
