Thanks for visiting my site.

I am currently the scientific illustrator for the Dinosaur Institute (DI) at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

My illustrations have been published in several scientific publications including
Nature and the The Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, as well as in popular publications that include the books Glorified Dinosaurs, and the award-winning Dinosaur Eggs Discovered!, in GEO Magazine, the Los Angeles and New York Times, and numerous web sites.

In addition to freelance art projects and working as the illustrator for the DI, I also participate in field work with the DI where I help to prospect, map, and excavate dinosaur bones. The opportunity to do field work has been of tremendous value. From excavation to visual reconstruction, it is a delight to be involved with dinosaur research at so many different levels.

My background is in fine art and I emphasized in painting and drawing as a student at the University of Southern California. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the USC Roski School of Fine Arts.


As time permits, I am currently accepting commission work.
