Summary

Multimedia artist with a foundation in traditional manual arts. Current base of operations is in Atlanta, Georgia. Where I continue to work with multiple artistic mediums. Majority of my professional art career was in the United States Air Force. During this time I amassed a wide range of manual art skills including illustration, painting, and sculpting in both traditional/ digital forms. Another key skill-set acquired, is in the art of 2D, 3D animation/ modeling/ Computer Generated Imagery (CGI). This is when I turned to ZBrush as my main tool, leading me to start 254MM in March 2013. Since starting 254MM, I have the pleasure of working with the Custom Automobile, Entertainment, 3D printing, VR, and Military industries. With this vast toolbox to work from, my expertise is surely able to bring life to virtually anything your clients mind’s eye can see. In a nut shell, I specialize in turning creative energy into physical matter by using traditional/ digital artistry, rapid-prototyping, and 3D Printing.
