From a young age, I was drawn to the enchantment of drawing, as crayons of every hue sparked my imagination. As I grew, my artistic journey evolved alongside my interests, from creating dinosaurs and monsters to immersing myself in video games like Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid and many others. The captivating character designs and manga-inspired art of Japanese culture left an indelible mark on my vision, shaping my aspiration to become a character designer for the gaming industry.

Despite attending an art high school that lacked formal instruction in fundamentals, I thrived in a competitive environment fueled by passionate peers. Inspired by both Eastern and Western art styles, I embarked on a quest to develop my own distinct style through meticulous study and experimentation. However, I encountered a number of debilitating challenges along the way. I realized the vital importance of mastering what I lacked - the fundamentals and in so being, I found the guidance needed to help overcome these such limitations.

My journey took a transformative turn when I rediscovered a passion for realism, encouraged by my business partner Kris to explore new artistic horizons. Embracing this challenge not only expanded my creative repertoire but also opened doors to collaborations with renowned comic publishers and opportunities to showcase my work at prestigious conventions worldwide.

Beyond art, my curiosity extends to understanding the intricacies of human behavior and cultivating personal well-being. Regularly engaging in physical activities like gyming, rock climbing and mountain biking not only nourishes my body but also fosters mental resilience and emotional balance, each offering valuable lessons in perseverance and self-discovery.

As I continue to navigate the complex tapestry of life, my ultimate goal remains unchanged: to master not only the art of creation but the art of living itself and help others realize their fullest potential. Let us seize this singular opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery and creative fulfillment, striving to become the greatest version of ourselves in this lifetime and beyond.
