About

With a passion for art and storytelling, Rhys has worked in the comic book, film and television, and video game industries for over 18 years.

Rhys grew up in a small town in Ontario, Canada where he developed a passion during his childhood for drawing and writing. He started playing and developing video games when his father brought home a Commodore 64 at the tender age of ten.

Rhys began working in 1999 on Marvel Comics’ Deadpool, and since that time has had the opportunity to work on ThunderCats, G.I. Joe, Battle of the Planets, and a number of exciting properties. He works in the film and television industry, as well as the video game industry - notably on Funcom’s “The Secret World”, Drinkbox’s “Tales from Space: About a Blob" as well as Ubisoft's "FarCry 5".

Rhys wrapped on the 3rd season of the science-fiction television series "The Expanse", and is currently working at Brown Bags Films on an undisclosed animation project as well as the feature film "Polar".
