Verified identity


I am a professional freelance illustrator/ hand letterer and a Pratt graduate. I am skilled in both digital and traditional media and work equally well with watercolors or a Wacom tablet.

I have worked on projects ranging from editorial illustration to animation assets. My work is richly detailed, colorful and surreal. I can create expansive environments or succinct visual puns. I can also provide hand lettering services.

I pride myself on working quickly and taking direction well. My communication skills are excellent and I never miss a deadline.

Some past clients of mine include The New York Times, The Lily/Washington Post, Variety,The Stranger, Le Monde, Lenny Letter, Chase and WebMD.
