Graphic Designer.Illustrator.

I am a student of life, graphic designer and illustrator born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. I received my Associates Degree in Visual Communications in 2009 from the International Academy of Design and Technology-Pittsburgh. I started my design career at the Mattress Factory Museum of Contemporary Art, as their in-house designer. Under the direction of Todd Porter and Roberto Maxwell, I spent a wild three years as a professional tattooist at Sinners and Saints Tattoo in East Liberty. When I decided to go back to school I accepted a position at Cornelius Signage as first a screen-printer and then as a production designer. My background is a mixture of a lot of things. In whatever I am doing I have always found it to be rooted in my love of art and the fundamentals of the design process. I have learned things that are unique to the path I have chosen which has shaped my unique perspective and creative abilities for the better.

If you would like to discuss a project or talk design over a cup of coffee and/or a pizza please refer to my contact page.

Thank you for the visit.
