For as long as I can remember I have always been an artist. I won my first medal when I was five years old in Japan for painting in watercolor. Since then I have developed my artistic talents professionally. I have worked extensively with photography and graphic design during my tenure in the United States Air Force. I have been working with photoshop since version 3.0 when bevels and embossing were created from scratch. I have designed and produced Air Force posters from various events such as NFL, Corona and Air Fest.
When I resigned honorably from the military, I pursued a Bachelor of Arts Degre in Media from UCSD where I refined my skills and acquired new ones. I produced mock projects and designs that captured the essence of marketing identies, fine art, and documentary. I was able to express myself in various forms of media such as sound design, film, video, and graphic arts.
Currently, I still work as a freelance media artist, producing websites and photo galleries. I have also taken on photography and video projects working on events such as Elysium, an annual midsummer festival held in the La Jolla Indian Reservation Camp-grounds. In addition to freelancing, I currently freelance for The Art Metropolis. (www.theartmetropolis.com).
My sister, Clarissa, has given me permission to feature her art as well. She has followed my footsteps and is double majoring at UCSD, one major being Studio Art. She is an editor for ISA Magazine. I hope you enjoy her art as much as I do. Together we shall conquer the world!
