'I am a storyteller...not just a writer or illustrator, but a visual artist. Like our early ancestors, it is my desire to tell our myths and lore, our triumphs and tragedies through images. If I am lucky, the stories I tell will hold meaning and carry a message in this world long after I am no longer a part of it.'
As a Photographer I shoot mostly Editorial, Lifestyle, and Environmental Portraits. I hold a Degree in Cinema and Photography from Southern Illinois University - Carbondale. I spent four years exploring the wonders of New York City, and had the privilege of freelancing as an art director/graphic designer for many high profile clients such as UNICEF, L'Oréal, Ogilvy & Mather, Pepe Jeans and The Wall Street Journal. A few years ago I picked up a Nikon D80 and fell in love with photography all over again.
My Photoshop work has been featured in the Mind's Eye Theatre Journals #1 & #4, and in the following White Wolf Publishing, Inc. books: Oblivion, Wraith: The Oblivion, 2nd ed., The Long Night, The Shining Host, Laws of the Hunt, and Laws of Elysium. I am a member of the ASMP and recently joined the APA as well. After freelancing as a visual artist, print & web designer as well as teaching photography and Photoshop at the Art Institute of Atlanta I have decided to return to school at SIU-C and work on my MFA degree in Media Arts.
