My childhood was spent creating adventures.
Days were filled with my younger brother and I building forts on the hill in our backyard with wooden swords to go right along with them. Inspired by my favorite movies, each sword was adorned with embellishments and paint. I finished each sword by carving my initials on the hilt, marking them as mine. On rainy days, I filled sketchbooks cover to cover with imagined adventures, using any medium I could get my hands on.

Today, I still strive to leave my mark in all of my work.
As a designer and illustrator, I am responsible for translating abstract concepts into approachable and digestible visual communication. Whether it’s inspiration from my favorite films, or elements pulled from my love of heavy music, hand touches make design more relatable—more human.
