Hello and thanks for visiting!

BioWare Edmonton has been my home for some time now. I work as a 3d Character Artist, and feel very fortunate to work with highly skilled people everyday and have the opportunity to contribute to great new games.

I graduated from the Alberta College of Art & Design in 2001 with a Bachelor of Design, majoring in Visual Communications. 

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, practicing Chen style Taiji Practical Method, working on personal art, reading, and building model kits.

 

Below are some links to work-related character art interviews over the years, and of course, my workplace:
