I am a self taught artist who will welcome any and all helpful critiquing. I love the gaming world from the moment I held the Atari joystick. I have been privileged to see these games evolve to what they are today. The Next-Generation consoles have opened so many more possibilities and I love being part of a hard working team that is bring all these new thoughts and ideas to life.
