I am a former construction field superintendent and project manager, turned Visual Artist. Quite a jump,right? It was totally worth it!
Growing up in Tucson, AZ, our frequent trips to Disneyland ignited my love for drawing and for creating immersive fantasy worlds. I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at the University of Arizona before taking a job in construction. Years later it would be those magical visits that would fuel my leap from a 'safe' career to pursue an intense period of self-study and honing my craft.
Today I bring the promises that Imagineers make to life. For 7+ years my clients have included Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI), Hasbro, 20th Century Fox and Universal. As an illustrator, concept artist, designer, and art director, I've created vibrant and visually engaging stories from complex ideas for premium clients in the themed entertainment and gaming industries. Some of my favorite projects included Frozen, Pirates of the Caribbean, Epcot and Marvel. Not to mention the Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Dungeons and Dragons tabletop games.
My time in construction taught me invaluable planning and communication skills. These directly influence the way I lead teams of artists and show designers in the punctual delivery of creative, world-class themed attraction concept packages.
Now, I can truthfully say that I am living Walt Disney's motto: "Dream, Believe, Dare, Do."
Design, craft, and dynamically develop engaging, high-quality storyboards, attraction POVs and overall land isometrics for Walt Disney Imagineering, Hasbro, and others.
Collaborated closely with a busy team of Creative Directors, Show Writers, and Architects to create immersive themed rides, shows, and lands based on existing and original and well known IPs.
Produced high-quality paintings and promotional artwork for Fox World Dubai that was praised and released worldwide.
Personally oversaw the construction of nearly 40 restaurants, offices and retail locations. Directed all field operations for commercial tenant improvement projects, championing all major planning, delegation and coordination.
