Brief Summary
I have worked for companies big & small, dealing with clientele as large as Wal-Mart & as small as local street performance groups. I believe I bring a vibrant sense of design and an atypical illustrative style to my work. I enjoy bringing efficiency and a calm, can-do attitude to every workplace.

My goal is to exceed expectations by doing the best work to produce beautiful results that both the client and I will love. I am taking steps to work in every aspect of the arts that interest me, showing my work internationally.
