Brief Introduction: I began communicating what I saw in the world at a young age and haven’t stopped since. When I create, I think of my method as a science and my final product as the art. My work normally takes an architectural-craft in origin but ranges in style often combining traditional and contemporary themes. The mediums it operates in vary from traditional-media, models, prototypes, or digital concepts. I gain inspiration from capturing information, emotion and energy in shapes, angles, and composition. I identify as a graphic designer, industrial designer, and creative artisan. ============================================================================== Bio: My fascination for creating came about at a very young age and was inspired through my curiosity with nature, insects, automation, and digital media. A very influential catalyst that I contribute to this fascination from my past was derived from the design mechanics behind SEGA title’s, “Sonic the Hedgehog” and how those themes often involved hints of these. I began communicating what I saw in the world around me around age 4 and haven’t stopped since. Since then, my professional artistic background dates back to my sixth grade year in middle school where I was enrolled in magnet programs up through high school. Namely those schools were Sudbrook Magnet middle school and George Washington Carver Center for the Arts & Technology in Towson, Maryland. When I create, I think of my method as a science and my final product as art. My work normally takes an architectural-craft in origin and ranges from any variety of hand-drawn illustrations, paintings, digital sketches, user interface design, graphic design, industrial design, or mechanical engineering concepts. I often liken my themes of each of my works to being inspired through insects in some way or another even though they are not intentionally obvious in many ways. Symbolically, my fine art work often communicates a metamorphosis (metaphorically or literally); And my industrial design and mechanical work often is meant to further "metamorphose" human interactions with technology around them.
