I recently have moved to the Seattle area with my wife and two boys from Spokane, WA to further my career as an artist and designer.
When we were expecting our first son, my wife went back to school to become a nurse. To do this, I needed to put my career on hold for more stable work to support our family. Now, my wife is a nurse at Seattle Children’s Hospital and I am excited to build on my career.
Most of my working background is in sales and construction, which taught me networking and trade skills that can be applied in any environment.
I learned most of my artistic and design skills from my extracurricular activities. I did an internship at the design studio AHA! Creative for a while where I learned the ins and outs of the design business. I was heavily involved in the local arts community in Spokane, WA, creating pieces for exhibits and galleries and painting murals for local businesses. I also created The Mealstorm, a webcomic which I wrote, illustrated, and promoted to varying success online. My comic appeared on the front page of many top tier Reddit pages and earned 5000+ followers on Instagram.
