I'm a father of three, husband, artist, and software engineer that believes in the power of art for children to motivate and inspire.

Mild mannered code monkey by day, slightly less mild mannered artist by night.

Cedar Rapids, Iowa is where I call home with my wife, three children, dog, and cat.

My goal is to become a published illustrator for children.  Until then, code monkey go to job.

I haven't always been an artistic and dashing cog in the military industrial complex.  If you've made it this far and are actually interested in learning more about me, you can read a not-so-short bio here.
