Though he is best known for his RPG fantasy maps, he is also prominent in the board-game and publishing industry as well. His work is generally known for its organic and elaborate design elements which give his pieces a sense of age and depth. He has a penchant for historical works (both art and literature), a strong love of travelling, miniature gaming, as well as cats and gluten-free pizza.
