I graduated from the University Of Michigan with a Masters Degree in Medical and Biological Illustration. We took classes with the medical and dental students as well as refine our studio skills.
From there I worked as a medical illustrator at the University Of Medicine and Dentistry Of New Jersey for one year. That's where I had access to a Silicon Graphics machine with Softimage, and taught myself. After visiting San Francisco, I packed my bags and headed west. I found myself suddenly working as a lead character artist in the game industry.
I worked as a lead character artist for companies such as Crystal Dynamics, Z-Axis, and Activision for the next ten years. Until about the last 2 years, I was the entire character department!
After the typical mass layoff, I found myself drawing again on my love of science, and started a company called "VisuaLegal" with an attorney friend of mine. From there I branched off to start "Visuals For Expert Witnesses", which I still do till this day.
Due to the ups and downs inherent in freelance work, I am looking for more steady employment, and continue freelancing in the evenings. Would love work in film, back in the game industry, or with another legal graphics firm.
