About the Artist
What drives you to make the things you’re selling on Real Mart?
What creative project are you currently brainstorming?
How to get my unicorn and dragon to make a baby unigon that breathes rainbows of fire.
Who has been your greatest inspiration(s)—professionally or creatively (or both)?
There are tons of people I work with who are amazing at what they do, so that’s pretty inspiring. Outside of work I’m a pretty huge fan of Scott Hansen, he’s super talented dude.
What music do you like to listen to when you’re working?
It ranges from The Album Leaf to Zion I and EVERYTHING between.
I’m a fan of Ray Bradbury and that sort of genre of books.
Way too many
Favorite video game(s):
I love the destruction in the Battlefield Series, but I love the gun play in the Call of Duty Series. Portal and Half-life are awesome, and I dug Fallout a ton. The art style in Borderlands was fantastic.

I visit this one bog fairly often, usually to watch a group of meddling kids and a Great Dane solve some seemingly otherworldly mysteries.
I work at Real Art and have for a really long time. I graduated with a B.F.A. from the University of Dayton, with a concentration in Visual Communication Design. I started off as a print designer, which I still do a little of in my free time, but I’ve transitioned to interface design and have been learning some html/css thanks to the help of my co-workers Alison and Ben. In addition, I’ve be learning how to animate in After-Effects with a little help from my co-worker Tim.
As far as my personal life goes, I currently reside in the Wicker Park area of Chicago with my beautiful new bride.
When I'm not at work or creating fabulous goods for Real Mart, I enjoy riding bikes, playing video games, cooking, eating and drinking awesome beer with good friends.
