As you may be able to guess Star Wars was an early influence in my life. As a kid I spent many an afternoon playing the intergalactic hero either with a toy laser gun or on a smaller scale with my action figures. Did you know a plastic Chewbacca will turn green after spending a winter lost in the Michigan snow?
I took my first official Star Wars job in 1995 working on the roleplaying game with West End Games. A year later, I graduated with honors from the illustration department of the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and went freelance full-time. My involvement in that galaxy far, far away grew as I became the primary artist for Star Wars Kids magazine and illustrated Star Wars children's books for Golden Books and Randomhouse Publishing. To date I've worked with nearly all of the big Star Wars licensees on a variety of projects. I've even become a bit of a writer with a regular article in the Star Wars Insider magazine.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be living that childhood dream today making my own mark in the Star Wars universe.
