First off, I would also like to thank Craig for putting this collective together! Its exciting to be viewed in the same place as the other geniuses in the Shadowcore* stable. (I know I'm late in posting my intro, but you'll have to forgive my wife for having a baby last week.) I'll have to do my best to keep up with the quality of the other members, and I'm motivated to do better work after looking at what the others are kicking out!
For anyone who does't know me (most everyone), I have a long history in the video games industry, dating back to 1996. Out of art school, where I earned a design degree, I landed a job with a startup game company called BioWare. Fast forward 12 years, I left in 2008 to become a freelancer after having a long and rewarding career as the principal marketing artist for that company. For the past couple years I have been getting into the RPG and TCG (card game) field, and loving the people and projects very much.
I live in Canada with my wife and 2 sons, and we try to stay warm and safe from rabid moose. About once a year I venture south to meet up with the great folks in the fantasy art community and to learn more about how a freelancer is supposed to make a living, and replenish my vitamin D levels. So far so good.
I've got a blog, which has some good info squirreled away in old posts if anyone is interested. I'll do my best to add information and new art to the growing Shadowcore* worldwide phenomenon.

Update: (6:30pm) After making a joke about a rabid moose and then heading out the door of my studio to go for supper, there was in fact a 500lb moose right outside my door. True.
