I'm a storyteller who takes complex, abstract and new ideas and creates visuals that are educational, enlightening and delightful.

If you ask my colleagues, they'll tell you that I'm an illustrator, a painter, a web designer, an animator, an 'idea guy', or perhaps something else entirely. Its true, I've been trained in and absolutely love visual arts. However, I'm a storyteller at heart, and all of these things I've done orbit about the concept of telling stories. My story. Their story. Your story.

I am always on the lookout for engaging opportunities to help individuals or companies tell their stories. I believe that stories are the best way to:

• Impart understanding.

• Share your mindset.

• Convey value.

• Reveal motivation.


Both my personal life and my extensive career are full to the brim with communication discovery; visual storytelling through illustration, animation and design; audio communication via podcasting and public speaking; even some writing and photography. I love to find the story in something, and then explore the best way to tell it to those who need to hear it.

I’ve helped tell the stories of characters through their design, of worlds for video games, of careers through audio podcasts, and of companies to their audiences through brand, website and printed page. I’m always on the lookout for a great story.
