An older member of Gen-X, I am an artist and a programmer who spent way too many quarters playing Space Invaders, Asteroids, Defender and Donkey Kong as a youth. Born and weaned in SoCal, refined for almost a decade in East Texas and educated and employed back in SoCal. Ready to do battle with my BFA in Art from UCLA and my 15 years in the video game industry. I excel in Special Effects and have been doing those almost exclusively since 1999. I now live in Santa Monica right across the street from Naughty Dog... which is a good thing cause I work there.
