Illustrating to make the world more amazing.

I'm an illustrator and designer with a fascination of the art of storytelling. I have always loved the process of imagining the appearance of people's dreams and ideas. I find that there's an importance to our society and our culture in artistic expression. I specialize in illustration in both traditional and digital means, but also enjoy graphic and logo design.

 

​I have a BFA specializing in Media Arts & Animation from The Illinois Institute of Art - Schaumburg. I have over six years of graphic design experience through a combination of part-time, full-time, and freelance work.
