I help businesses and individuals visually communicate through thoughtful, engaging and effective design. And I draw stuff. 

For over ten years I've been able to collaborate with awesome clients locally, nationally and even internationally -- running the creative gamut of design and illustration in everything from children's book illustrations to environmental branding to print design and so much more.

I have had a passion for visual communication and carbohydrates as long as I can remember. Growing up in a small town in upstate New York, I was one of few with a serious interest in art and design, but I knew I could make a career of it when one of my early works was stealthily heisted from a maximum security bulletin board in high school. I went on to navigate the waters of art school and earned a BFA in illustration from Syracuse University.

I’m currently based in Columbia, South Carolina where I get to create everyday and slowly sweat to death.

When I’m not brainstorming a new brand concept, adjusting kerning in a menu layout, or inking a drawing -- I’m working on art for myself, reading a magazine on the beach or seeing some live music.
