Projects: I am constantly working on several projects with my company Kosart Studios. Since 2016, upon joining the IATSE Local 476 Studio Mechanics Chicago, my studio and I have since been primarily working on films and television shows filming in Chicago. I was Special FX Make-Up Department Head and MUFX Designer for Jordan Peele’s new CANDYMAN sequel that shot from July to September, and am currently the Special FX Make-Up Department Head and MUFX Designer on the 4th season of the award-winning TV series FARGO. My studio sculpted and created all the prosthetics and FX props for these projects, along with creating the make-up FX and sculpting various props for Jordan Peele’s & J.J. Abrams’ LOVECRAFT COUNTRY pilot, 3 seasons of CHICAGO PD, 4 seasons of EMPIRE, and along with CHICAGO JUSTICE, SHAMELESS Season 9, BEATS, NeXT, PROVEN INNOCENT, and others. Through these shows we have worked with A-List actors including John Malkovich, Jessica Lange, William H. Macy, Demi Moore, Taraji Henson, Chris Brown, Taye Diggs, and many more. With many more projects on the horizon in the special effects and commercial sculpture industries for 2020, the studio and films have become a huge focus. However, I continue to spend time working on my personal fine art sculptures and paintings.
