Goodness Knows
we come to feel it all.

Goodness Knows
it’s all a lesson of love.

Goodness Knows
the possibilities are endless.

I take creativity seriously.

How serious? Twenty-five years immersed in graphic design and the entertainment marketing community is a good start. My commitment to strong design leadership means I’ve had the privilege to work with hundreds of artists, educators and entrepreneurs to help define personal brands as well as pop culture blockbusters including Star Wars, The X-Men and The Sound of Music.

But I didn’t do all that work alone.

While I absolutely love creating illustrative work for the entertainment industry, I equally enjoy my role as a college professor, mentoring artists and new recruits. It’s an honor to have helped place 150+ (and counting) designers, illustrators and motion graphics artists in the entertainment marketing field. Not only have these individuals found their dream jobs and launched thriving careers, they’ve gone on to earn hundreds of Clios as well as license and publish their work through Fox, Disney, Marvel and major galleries!

So, welcome to my website, home to my illustrative portfolio, workshops, merchandise and more. I’m deeply grateful for your company and look forward to continuing to serve up inspiration every day.
