I recently graduated from Otis College of Art and Design. My educational experience honed my design skills and prepared me for a career in the toy industry. Although my education was very focused, my abilities are not limited to just toy design. I possess a strong graphic design sense and i naturally gravitate to illustration and sculpting. I am a jack of all trades when it comes to art and design. I am always on the lookout for new skills in order to benefit myself and future employers.
