I attended Columbus College of Art and Design with a focus in video and film production with a minor in writing.
Work and Freelancing
Since graduation, I've been freelancing on random TV and web series production projects while taking odd jobs. I began work in the pet care industry where I discovered a knack for pet portraits in pastel pencils. This was the start of my "Doggie Doodles Pet Portraits" service. (Find out more in the Portfolio section or view the example gallery here.)
I started work at Complete Care Animal Hospital in 2013 where I was first utilized for artistic and creative skills doing marketing and promotional materials such as postcards, banners, posters, flyers, etc. In 2015 I took the began work at the design firm Client Solution Innovations as the in-house videographer, editor, and graphic and web designer. This opened up a lot of doors for me in terms of experience. The company ultimately closed down once the owner took on a new business venture and I returned to Complete Care Animal Hospital where they gracelessly created the "Social Media Director" position for me. Since then I've been responsible for managing the social media platforms, website, marketing, photography, and creating videos. I also spearhead events such as the annual open house and local Christmas parade float entree.
I still freelance on the side.
Skill Sets and Programs
Acrylic Pouring / Fluid Art
As many do, I went through a dinosaur obsession phase when I was a kid. Dinosaurs were the first things I would draw and make art of. It was pure serendipity I was 6 and at the peak of this dinosaur fascination when Jurassic Park was first released, which turned me onto a lifelong passion for the art or film-making and solidified my desire to become a creative and artistic person. Needless to say, these prehistorical creature have a lot of sentimental value and played a huge roll in starting me on the path that lead me to where I am today.
I am currently based in Columbus, Ohio and willing commission work all throughout the state.
