I am a Michigan based artist focused on visual communication through graphic design
I am currently a freelancer, working both as an Illustrator for publishers and entertainment clients, and as a Graphic Designer and Art Director for businesses of all sizes. In the past, I've worked as a Graphic Designer and Director of Design at a clothing company, as a Web Designer at a marketing agency, and as an art director at a handful of other agencies.
I love Art and Design, and I love the process of creating effective visuals that convey a story. I love every step of the way, from initial brief and thumbnail sketching, through final manifestation and delivery.
This all began in my childhood. It started with cars, sports logos, and super heroes. Fittingly, I wound up studying design and illustration after high school at College for Creative Studies, and I began a part-time graphic design job around the same time, which led to a full-time job at Detroit a based clothing company. I learned the necessary skills of garment design and eventually elevated to the Director of Design role. Years later, I began designing and illustrating stylized t-shirts, logos, and album art for local bands, and very soon after, internationally prominent record labels and artists. It was at this point that I took a leap and transitioned into full-time freelance.
Since then I’ve maintained a steady clientele from the entertainment, music, clothing industries, in addition to graphic design work creating branding and identity for a multitude of clients and industries.
