Illustrator and writer of the broken and the beautiful.

I graduated with a degree in Psychology and nearly sent off my application to law school. The whole process filled me with unhappiness that I couldn’t explain at the time, and I took a year off to find out what I really wanted to do. I discovered art.

I worked as a concept artist for Universal Studios theme parks, Warner Bros. Abu Dhabi, Disney VR, and various other virtual reality experiences (Mission: ISS, Blade Runner 2049). After a few years of working on other people’s stories, I wanted to tell my own.

I’ve done work for Kraken Dice, Strange Horizons, Diabolical Plots, and am currently an art director for khōréō, a speculative fiction magazine focused on the diaspora experience.

I’m actively looking for TTRPG, book cover and freelance work.

My work has been featured in:
American Illustration 39
Spectrum 24
Infected by Art 7 & 8

Artist Choice Award (Dragoncon 2019)
