I have been an Art Director in the Video Games industry for almost 15 years. It’s a lot of fun, but it’s a lot more work than most people realize.The hours are long and the responsibilities are many. It has left little time or energy for some of my more time consuming creative endeavors, sculpture,3D Modelling, illustration and film making, especially when balancing a family.
I hadn’t really explored photography since art school ( almost 20 years) but after buying my wife a Canon 7D for her birthday this year, that all changed. Now the only thing we fight about is the camera.
Right now I am exploring as many subjects as I have time for, but I haven’t decided which direction I am going in yet. Macro is appealing to me because I have always been amazed by the smallest of details, whether in a work of art or in nature. The “bio-mechanics” of insects, the contrast of hard edges and color, the millions of perfect variations, has always been a draw for me.
I hope you enjoy my work as I continue to explore Photography and how I can use it in my art.

I am currently on a bit of a Greek Mythology kick..just for fun. / My next piece is going to be based on Herakles and the Hydra. / The Hydra has been done by countless artist and is typically represented as a dragon or snake like creature. I am trying to take all of my inspiration from “microscopic parasitic organisms”. / I started the sculpt in Z-brush over the weekend and hope to ge…
If you had 3 days in Scotland , no responsibility and a nice camera….. / Where would you go? / I am looking for some ideas. I just found out I will be in Scotland for 6 days on business. / I have to be in Troon, Glasgow and St Andrews, but I have 3 days to myself and I want to get some great photos. / Where would you go?
So after a week of overtime at work and a home computer that is in pieces on the kitchen table ( graphics card keeps burning up), I came back to redbubble to find out how my work had been recieved for SoJie 14. / I have not gotten a chance to read and respond to them all, I can only say I was as stunned at the awards as I was with the amount of messages of congratulations and I want to say thank …
