I believe that the most important part of any image I create is the concept. The image has to tell a story in a way that is relevant and causes the viewer to feel something. I work hard to find fresh perspective and create multi-layered, conceptual work that compliments the text and resonates with the audience long after they have turned the page, left the building and got on with the business of living. My work has been recognized by The AOI World Illustration Awards, the American Advertising Federation, the Independent Publisher Awards, Illustrati magazine, Pantone Gallery and CNBC's top beer labels. I was born and raised in Kentucky. I graduated from Cincinnati Academy of Design and worked as an Art Director/Creative Director in Cincinnati for many years. I now live in France with my wife and daughter.
