Art Direction, Graphic Design, Illustration, Animation, Problem-Solving

Things. It's smart to hire someone who's good at doing a lot of things. I've been working professionally as a graphic designer, illustrator, and After Effects animator for over fifteen years. I’m pretty good at the things I do, which makes my clients very happy.

I enjoy solving visual problems. Please contact me if you’ve got one.
