About Me

Welcome to my portfolio! I am an artist/designer based in Los Angeles, CA.  I have over a decade of experience in the video game industry, specializing in user interface design and concept art. With a diverse skill set encompassing hard surface, character concept art, environment design, motion graphics, graphic design, branding, and game development using Unreal Engine, I bring a wealth of expertise to every project.

As a key contributor to projects like Apex Legends for Respawn Entertainment, I’ve played a pivotal role in establishing the UI art style, crafting captivating environments, and designing compelling character and weapon skins. My background in both pre-production and live service AAA production environments has honed my ability to thrive in collaborative settings, working seamlessly with teams to bring visions to life.

Guided by clear design goals and regular communication with stakeholders, I ensure that each project surpasses expectations. Drawing inspiration from diverse sources such as art books, films, comics, and gaming, I infuse my designs with creativity, depth, and popular culture. From initial sketches to final iterations, I strive for excellence, refining each design into a polished result.

With a lifelong passion for video games and a dedication to continuous improvement, I take pride in crafting designs that not only reflect my personal taste but also contribute to immersive and engaging gaming experiences. Please reach out if you are interested in working together!
