Birthdate? 08/24/74

When did you start illustrating? When I was 13 years of age, turn to digital artworks when I was 18 and never stopped since.

When and what and where did you make your first sale? At the Mounds Mall in Anderson, Indiana of November 2005, also at a silent auction in 2006.

Why do you paint or draw? It calms the mind, and flows of imagination, and creative skills start.

Why do you work with Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? Because I have been a fan of sci-fi and fantasy, it brings imagination to life, also the magic behind it and the artistry is awesome!!

Who is your favorite illustrator? Stan Lee. I was inspired by him also I graduated from the same school he did at Dewitt Clinton H.S.

What is your medium of choice? Do you work in any other medium? At the moment I stay with digital illustrations, because it fun and easier to do and I'm used to it, I hand draw a few times but only on a freelance basis if I need to create and sell logos, and t-shirts designs or snowboards to companies in need.

Does this particular illustration have a story behind it? Please share it. Not really more like a showcase of what it can be if a person where to have a story that goes with it.

Do you blog? Where? Sometimes, http://fractalking.blogspot.com

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say? That I'm not sure I have too many things in my head, lol!!
