Client Testimonial:

“Joe is able to capture the subtleties that define characters, products, services and environments first in his mind, then in script, concept and art.

Projects that require a team effort Joe tackles almost single-handedly. He also keeps his work organized, on budget and within the given time constraints; and he doesn’t get offended when changes are requested.

In a nutshell, Joe is a brilliant and talented artist who is easy and fun to work with.”

- Darcy Guello, Owner of Guello Marketing

Life away from the computer...

In my free time I enjoy exploring all different artistic mediums including drawing, painting, and photography. I find that exploring different mediums provides inspiration and a broad understanding of visual communication and composition. I also enjoy cooking, playing acoustic guitar, classic car restoration, unicycling and SCUBA diving.
