About

I began my love of art as a youngster! Spiderman was my favorite thing to draw. I started making money from art as a caricature artist at the Opryland Themepark in Nashville.

I completed my M.A in Illustration/Design in 2010 and am near the completion of my Illustration M.F.A. from Savannah College of Art & Design. Currently, I’m a college art professor who also enjoys freelance illustration. I would love to become a freelance illustrator that enjoys teaching on the side.I’m a member of SCBWI.

I have illustrated many board books and other products for The Clever Factory, numerous spot illustrations for Pockets Magazine and have extensive experience in illustrating for Lifeway Christian Resources and United Methodist Publishing House.

I’m a parrothead who enjoys playing D&D in his spare time. I also enjoy watching Netflix and playing board games with my wife and three sons. (Oh, and drawing)
