I'm a Chicago based Game Development Artist.

Growing up just west of Chicago and having attended the Illinois Institute of Art, I currently work as a Senior Artist at Scientific Games — previously WMS Gaming — creating both original and licensed artwork for slot-based gaming experiences.

Outside of work I can be found with a coffee in one hand, a comic book in the other. In the few months Chicago finds itself with above zero temperatures, I'll likely be fretting about how the Cubs are faring in the NL standings.
