I am an advertising professional. I've been an art director, a sometimes copywriter, an ACD, a studio artist and an in-house illustrator. The constant love throughout my journey has been my ability to draw. It is the talent that allows me to express myself most creatively, and continues to grow in meaning and focus in my life. My strive for excellence is a relentless chase for that illusive zenith called perfection.
