I am moving to the OC and am looking for work! :) I am essentially looking for  something long-term - a career! But I'm always willing to take on freelance contract work as well.

To view my online portfolio with my artwork and resume, please visit my website:

Allow me to tell you a bit about myself:

In June of 2010, I earned my Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts in Video Game Art and Design at the Illinois Institute of Art: Schaumburg, Illinois. It was there that I refined my artistic talents and gained working knowledge of various software programs, along with expanding my design skills. I learned the fundamentals of design, illustration, typography, and color theory, and expanded on that to producing high-quality finalized artwork. In addition, I learned the basics of 3D design using Autodesk 3ds Max, which went hand-in-hand with doing conceptual artwork for the 3D modelers in group projects.

My related work experience includes having worked in a professional environment for the company Ideum, where I produced a wide variety of artwork for many different projects. These included drawing different characters I was given creative liberty to dream up, designing skins and themes for the virtual controllers, along with elements for the Gameplay website, designing logos, webpages, and UI elements, along with promotional materials for the company, such as posters and infographics. Additionally, I am currently doing freelance work for a Hollywood producer for an upcoming 2017 3D animated film called Heaven: The First War that will be done in Disney's Frozen style. Lastly, I designed six different maps in the past for the History Channel for a special called The Gates of Hell. I have the ability to adapt my art to meet a variety of styles and can take a project from simple concepts all the way through production.

Thank you so much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you!
