Let me tell you a
little about myself:
Growing up in the suburbs of Massachusetts, I was rarely found without a pencil or crayon in my hand. As early as first grade, I began writing and illustrating my own children’s books. Sure, they may have been crudely drawn and lacked crucial character and plot development, but ever since those childhood days, I dreamt of a career in the wonderful world of art.
Throughout high school, I loaded my notebooks, assignment sheets, and anything else I could get my hands on with countless sketches and doodles. During these “rebellious teenage years”, I expanded my love affair with art to different mediums including photography, film, mixed media collages, printmaking, sculpting, and music (in fact, I am a self taught guitarist and keyboardist). Soon I began designing posters for friends' bands which lead me to graphic design and the Savannah College of Art & Design.
After graduation, I took up a few freelance gigs in Savannah before landing a job as a designer at the advertising firm, BFG Communications; where I worked for several different clients including Coca-Cola, Mello Yello, Cartoon Network, Treasury Wine Estates, Lance Crackers, Shoney's Restaurant, Mellow Mushroom, Harry Potter, and many others.
In October of 2012, I decided to move back to the northeast, and headed to New York City where I began working at Reitdesign, creating work for clients including Barnes & Noble College, The NYC Buildings Department, The Economist, NYC's YMCA, Global Pet Expo, and The Churchill School & Center.
In August of 2015, I took a dream job at BLT Communciations and moved to Los Angeles to start working on key art for film, television and Broadway.
I have also worked on a number of freelance projects with agencies like Group SJR and SME Branding.
