Born and raised in British Columbia, Canada I began drawing and painting at an early age. I began my creative career as a Graphic Designer and eventually went on to study Classical Animation at the Vancouver Film School. Upon graduation I started work at Mercury Filmworks as a Compositing and FX artist working on various animated television series and the Power Puff Girls feature film.
During my time at Mercury Filmworks I discovered a website called conceptart.org. It was there that I found artists sharing and critiquing each others artwork and was introduced to the field of Concept Art. I was hooked. I began participating in the Character of the Week challenge on conceptart.org, honing my skills as digital artist.
In 2008 I landed a job at Ironclad Games as a Concept Artist. There I spent the next six and half years designing characters, creatures, weapons, buildings and environments for their MOBA Sins of a Dark Age. Other tasks at Ironclad included texturing final character and creature models as well as designing icons and other art assets for the UI.

At the end of 2015, from October to December, I was a featured Creative Streamer on the Adobe channel on Twitch TV where I performed live digital painting demos in Adobe Photoshop and offered advice and critiques on viewers artwork.
I am currently working full-time at DHX Media, in Vancouver, British Columbia, as a 2D Compositor.
