My self summary
I'm an illustrator/designer living in Brooklyn, NY. I moved to New York in 2005 to shake my little town blues. While working as the Designer for the Society of Illustrators, I earned a BFA in Illustration from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Over the years, I have developed an affinity for poster design and hand lettering. My work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, SILA, Creative Quarterly: The Journal for Art & Design and others. 

What I'm doing with my life
Currently, I work as Staff Illustrator for Gawker + Jezebel. In between that and freelance gigs I make sure to find time for personal projects. Recently, I had a solo exhibition at Rivington Design House in SOHO. I am also very involved in the Society of Illustrators

I'm really good at
solving problems, drawing beautiful women, hand lettering, poster design-ustration and quoting 90's rap songs in casual conversation.

The first thing people usually notice about my work
is that it has strong line work and a retro vibe with a modern twist.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food 
Reads: Just Kids by Patty Smith | Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion 
Flicks: Cry Baby 
Stories: The Walking Dead | Game of Thrones | Beverly Hills 90210 
Tunes: Shake. Rattle. Roll. 
Noms: A t-bone steak, cheese, eggs and Welch's grape

On a typical Friday night I am
in the studio, blasting whatever the kids are listening to these days.  

The most private thing I'm willing to admit
I wear every single chain, even when I'm in the house.

I'm looking for
• Art Directors / Clients who like Illustrators
• Near me / anywhere in the world 
• Art Directors / Clients who are hiring 
• New clients, long-term projects, short-term projects

You should message me if
you like my work, want to hire me, or just want to say hi. :)
