Work experience


June, 2017 – Present (over 3 years)

In June 2017, after several years working in digital and publication design, I started my own company in order to work full-time on freelance design and illustration projects. Since then I've lead the design on several large industry publications, worked on a wide range of commissioned illustrations and animations, and of course my many un-ending personal projects.

I have a distinct lively, and graphic style of illustration, often expressing a sarcastic and surreal tone. I'm very comfortable combining traditional and digital techniques, I'm adaptable, and I'm full of ideas.
