"My style is heavily influenced by films and music, ranging from horror movies to animated feature films, heavy metal or symphonic rock to classical or acoustic instrumentals...

I would like to describe it as sort of like a yin yang type of effect on how my work develops. I love the balance. It's such an excellent outlet and a great way to utilize your imagination and really express yourself. I just love what I do."
