Overview

With over 10 years of experience, I am seasoned in working with independent authors and the publishing industry. I have a reputation for bringing literary works of art to visual life through my digital photography, digital painting, 3D modeling, and typography.


The shortlist of authors I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with include Kevin Hearne, Joe Abercrombie, Brian McClellan, Shayne Silvers, Michael Anderle, Ella Summers, Teddy Harrison, Hailey Edwards, Bec McMaster, Kim Harrison, and Ilona Andrews.


The publishing houses that have turned to me to create cinematic covers include Random House, DelRey, Bantam Books, Roc, Dutton Books, Kensington Publishing, Amazon Publishing, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, and Avon.


Ideally, I enjoy teaming with authors or publishing types who have a real thorough vision of the storyline and characters. It is my job to create a window to the author’s world for the reader and to be entrusted with this unique opportunity is the most rewarding challenge. Plus, I think it’s simply a load of fun for me to do.
