About

Statement:

I want to make graphics seem more real and watch how they develop and grow. I want to be able to put my input on how things will function or look. I see my skills growing because I’ll be working to be better at what I do. I want to see the projects I work on grow and be successful. The design starts with the individual and their skills to properly communicate how things will look through color pallets, references, and outlines; chances need to be taken if you are going to succeed or go anywhere.

I want to see objects, and environments that I spent my time and effort on in engine, in the game; or on screen in a movie theater. That’s really an artist’s greatest reward to see something they created functioning in the world they helped create. I had an internship at a print shop once doing graphic design. I made a sign for a pizza delivery car. While driving in traffic a few months later I saw it, that was a good moment. Its what I strive for again, and again; to see something like, what greater reward can you ask for when making something you care about.
