    Jersey City, NJ

I am an Illustrator graduated with a B.S. in Media Arts & Animation and a M.A. in Design & Craft. Through experience, I have honed my skills not only as an artist but also as a great team player. I strive to perform with efficiency in a fast-paced environment and created high-quality work while partaking in multiple projects concurrently. I am always looking forward to new challenges for I believe it will continuously help me grow professionally and personally. Seriousness aside, did I mention I'm also a gamer, comic lover, anime fan, emoticon addict, crafter, and a lover of anything cute?
