I'm an illustrator and designer based in Astoria, NY. I am a Designer in the art department at Open Road Integrated Media, where I create book covers, and on the side I do freelance illustration and design work. Besides designing books, I also have extensive experience in marketing design, including the creation of web and print ads, trade show materials, logos, and entire websites.

I attended Syracuse University and graduated summa cum laude with a BFA in Illustration and a concentration in Printmaking. I also earned Reneé Crown University Honors and was named one of thirteen VPA Scholars, the highest honor awarded by the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

Even though I work in publishing now, music has always been a huge part of my life. I've been to over 50 concerts in the last decade, most commonly for post-hardcore/metalcore/pop punk bands but also Kesha and Lupe Fiasco. I've been making band shirts for myself since high school, and would like the chance to make them for other people as well.
