In conclusion,....

If you're looking for someone to take you out of the blank-paper stage with quick concept sketches, if you're looking for an idea generator, another source of creative input who can be relied on to add something to your mix, then give me a call.

I offer experience exceeding 20 years as an artist and designer who has participated in the design of theme parks, commercial stores, themed restaurants, and location-based entertainment centers as well as created: 3D computer models and textures for renderings & animations.  Additionally, I'm able to sketch up ideas as they come up in meetings, or over the phone, and turn those sketches into whatever visual content you'll need.

I enjoy working with creative people and increase my experience in the bargain.
