Illustration
+ Graphic Design

Hello! I’m a graphic artist and web designer with a passion for visual communication. I create graphics, visuals and custom code that tells your story. Let’s make something together!

I’ll bring my core passions to your team:

  • creative design & visual communication
  • technical problem-solving & coding
  • creating elegant websites that work better for everyone

I’ll actively contribute my skills in:

  • design & illustration
  • front & back end web development
  • 3D modeling & animation

My background in art & design enables me to contribute to projects in valuable ways — from quickly visualizing design solutions, to being flexible, imaginative and detail-oriented in both my design and coding work. I am always looking for opportunities to create something unexpected and raise the bar.
