Hi, my name's Jacob. It's possible we haven't met yet.

Here's who I am.


I'm a game artist, animator, and graphic designer living near Nashville, Tennessee.  Ever since I got my first computer, I've always been driven to work hard and learn new things, giving me experience in art, animation, game development, and graphic design. My formal education in Visual Communications Multimedia helped me focus in on specific areas of my skillset - areas I'm eager to pursue professionally.

Primarily, I'm looking for a job that offers stability, challenge, and a constantly engaging environment.

There's the introduction.

Now here's what I can do for you.

Video Games

I've been working in the indie game industry for over 4 years, both as a hobbyist designer and a freelance artist. I am also the art director and co-creator of

The Tarnishing of Juxtia, a pixel art action-adventure game with almost 4000 followers on Twitter alone. Here's some of my best work:

Graphic Design

When it comes to graphics, my philosophy is to treat every project equally. Whether it's a logo, the design for an important document, or something weird for friends, I always put in my best effort. I have 2 years of experience in this area, as well as an Associate's Degree in Visual Communications Multimedia.

I have around 6 years of experience in animation. Much of that experience is for video games; however, it's also applicable for design-focused projects.
