Bio/Contact

In addition to designing & illustrating, I am a movie enthusiast & karaoke super star. I love digital compositing but traditional drawing with pen & paper is my favorite way to make my art come to life.

Design, illustration, movies, karaoke. They are my passions that inspire me when I take on new challenges. I create something from seemingly nothing. 

I am currently taking freelance design work & illustration commissions.
