Illustrator, Artist, Designer
I'm a Massachusetts based artist and illustrator with skills in animation and graphic design. I've lived in San Francisco and Mexico City but now find myself back in the Northeastern woods where I grew up. It's here where I gathered much of my early artistic inspiration. My work often evolves organically from my imagination, and focuses on the beauty and the unknown fears found in the natural world. I draw inspiration from plants, animals, science fiction, fantasy, and history. I've worked professionally for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, Disney, Microsoft, Free Range Studios, and many more. I work on commission and I've exhibited in galleries and conventions across the country. Don't hesitate to contact me about commissions, jobs, or questions concerning my work. Thanks for stopping by!

During my time studying at Mass Art I familiarized myself with the basic principals of animation and the fundamentals of drawing and painting for illustration. I was also introduced to the world of graphic design as I started my career creating work in the adobe suite and learning to use a wacom tablet. My thesis was to create a body of work in the realm of concept art where I conceptualized a broad and epic story, designing characters and assets which I am still developing years later. For the majority of my time at Mass Art I worked as an animation lab monitor teaching myself as I went, and helping both undergrad and grad students with software and equipment such as cameras, green screens, final cut pro, and the adobe suite.
