Biography

I am a big kid at heart and tend to have the energy of one as well. I focus that energy into my work in the hope that the excitement I put into it will radiate into other people that view it. I also tend to have the curiosity of a child and am constantly trying to learn something new. I'm a graphic designer, animator, sculptor, painter, toy collector and all around fun guy!
