Illustrator . Creator . Consultant


I illustrate professional art, create online content, develop creative concepts, and provide thoughtful and informative advice for companies, organizations, and individuals. I work through referrals. If you're interested in hiring me, have one of my colleagues or clients introduce us.

In 1995, I created the award-winning World Famous Comics, one of the Web's first and largest destinations for comic book and entertainment fans. Updated daily, WFC produced the very best for the Web by publishing exclusive columns, comics, contests, and features.

Today, World Famous Comics is an artist collective appearing yearly at San Diego Comic-Con International in Hall G, booth 5560.

NASA Social Alumni


I've been invited by NASA to join select influencers and science/technology mavens to go behind-the-scenes at various NASA facilities to speak with scientists, engineers, managers, and more so I can share what I learn with my social media followers and live-tweet from these events.

Official Illustrations


I've illustrated artwork for a licensed Star Trek print available at an official Star Trek convention celebrating the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation. A special guest at this Creation Entertainment event, I had the honor of autographing with actors Jonathan Frakes (William Riker) and Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi) this official Star Trek collectible for attending fans.

In addition, I was invited by Lucasfilm to be a guest at the Star Wars Celebration IV Art Show which brought together an incredible roster of talented artists who have contributed to the Star Wars galaxy. For this historic event, I illustrated artwork for a limited edition Star Wars 30th Anniversary lithograph. This high quality and official Star Wars print was limited to only 250 hand-numbered and autographed editions and available exclusively to Celebration IV attendees.

Kai Justiss, Jedi Knight


I'm also the real-life model for the Star Wars character Kai Justiss. Named after me and based on my likeness, this enigmatic Jedi's appearances include the Star Wars Galaxy trading card series, issues of Star Wars Insider magazine, Jedi vs. Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, Power of the Jedi Sourcebook, and the comic book Star Wars: Jedi -- Count Dooku (collected in Star Wars: Clone Wars Volume 4 - Light and Dark). Kai Justiss has been illustrated by acclaimed artists Jan Duursema, Chris Trevas, and his creator Joe Corroney. Writers that have contributed to his story include Pablo Hidalgo, Daniel Wallace, Ryder Windham, Abel Peña, Ryan Kaufman, and John Ostrander.
