After 14 years in the legal business I was worn out. In that time they zoned, rezoned, dezoned, and double zoned half of western Nevada. Forms had to filled out, edited, and explained. Then one day I sat down and realized that I was bored. I decided to stop being bored and to perhaps make others less bored. Yes, a decision was made. Then I was born in 1982 to a young couple in Orlando. They were not from Orlando. They were from Minnesota. They carried me back to Minnesota. Now I am 25 and I scribble little cartoon dogs on pieces of paper. It makes me so very happy-ish. I graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2005 with a degree in Illustration. I paint in mainly acrylic and do some digital work. People have told me that they see a whimsical nature in my artwork. This is good. There isn’t enough whimsy in day to day life. You are very lucky if it is your job to create whimsy. I hope to become more lucky. I have received multiple awards from both 3x3 magazine and the L.A. Society of Illustrators. I now live in New York.
