He has worked with Argonaut entertainment on several video games as well as WMS gaming (manufacturer of slot machines, video lottery terminals and software to help casinos manage their gaming operations).

When we approached him to sculpt our wrestlers he was more then receptive, with his years of experience and incredible mastery over the digital arts, he has been able to take our concept art and bring it to life. Besides being just one heck of a nice guy, he works tirelessly to make sure we are satisfied with the end result.

He also has an insane ability to add the tiniest details, this has fastly become one of the hallmarks of our figures that tends to set them apart from your standard small scale minifigure.
