A little bit more about me, my journey and why I do what I do.
Education, Training, and Experience
I'm a graduate of Huntington University with BA in Graphic Design. A strong fine arts foundation and knowledge of good art & design were acquired during my time at HU but my animation, 3D modeling, and visual FX skills are self-taught.
I had, for many years, had a dream of using my God given gifts and talents of art & design in film, but life and other things caused me to put that off. I would occasionally flirt with the hope, but never had the courage to pursue it... until now.
Sometime around the Spring of 2010, I had the opportunity to work on my first film, "The Sound of The Spirit". While the film itself was met with some criticism, the experience brought together some wonderful individuals. During that project I met the producer, Guy Camara of Kingdom Pictures who encouraged me to pursue my dream, as a calling given to me by God. Now here I am, doing film, making movies, and sharing the truth of The Bible and the God who gave it to us.
Themes, Genres, and Styles
My work tends to be a peculiar combination of sci-fi, fantasy, steampunk, and dieselpunk genres with an industrial edge. The sci-fi part is best described as grimy retro-futurism, the fantasy part as techno-anachronism. Mine is a slightly dark style with a splash of light and color... cinematic, dramatic, geeky and fun... difficult to categorize, it's "know it when you see it" kind of work. My particular style, combined with the genres I appreciate so much, lends itself to communicating the transcendent yet, practical truths of scripture in what I hope is a unique and original way.
Can you hire me?
Yes... with some caveats.
I'll cut to the chase... simply and perhaps bluntly, my work isn't cheap. If you're looking for a budget wedding video or a cut rate logo animation, I'm going to respectfully have to say no. You can ask me to do something at a discount or even for free... but unless you're a close friend or relative, you probably won't like my answer. Having said that, yes... you can hire me and all of the resources Artistic Alchemy has at it's disposal.
If you still want to hire me, call or email me (see that info at the bottom of this page), or better yet, follow me on social media and I'll get back with you as soon as possible.
