I truly feel I was born to be an artist/designer. I never really considered any other career path. I am passionate about what I do and wear my title of a “creative” individual as a badge of honor. The demand of producing top quality work is a great challenge and exciting task. Regardless of whether the client is nationally known, or a first time author, I expect no less than my level best in whatever I do.


I know you take pride in your writing. I take great pride in seeing my work displayed. It's that dual pride and desire to succeed that will push us forward as we work together.

My official Nerd Cred

Personally I'm a huge sci-fi and fantasy fan. I spent the first 10 years of my design career working along side and being apprenticed by the crazy talented knife and sword designer Kit Rae. Wroking in product development at United Cutlery, designing fantasy knives, swords and general utility use cutlery. We worked on prop reproductions for the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and later The Hobbit, as well as many other films and TV shows. Recently I designed three original licensed weapons based upon George R. R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" books…those three weapons being:

  • Eddard Stark's sword  "Ice"
  • King Robert's Warhammer
  • Brienne of Tarth's sword, "Oathkeeper.”
