Over the years, my artistic and illustrative endeavors have extended beyond that of the fantastic genre. I've participated in the design and creation of websites for agencies of the federal government and private corporations, created textile designs for an international carpet company, and logos for a number of private businesses, both large and small. I've also created art work on private commissions outside the fantastic genre and have been the graphic artist for a prestigious architectural firm in Washington, DC.  Though having done this variety of work, the fantastic genre remains my passion.

In illustration, I have been published in magazines, books and on the web. The mediums I primarily use are oils, acrylics, ink and pencil. In the digital domain I'm well versed on the more popular image editors and vector drawing programs. I've won a number of awards in the fantastic field, from a finalist in the L. Ron Hubbard "Illustrators of the Future" contest, to being nominated for a Chesley Award by ASFA in 2006.
