I am an Illustrator with 20 years of experience.
My career started in advertising, as a graphic designer and illustrator.
Recently, I have acquired Illustration experience for tv and feature film
I was an instructor for one semester at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and I look forward to instructing again in the future.
However, I am always open to serve as an illustrator.
