I am an artist living and working in the East Village of New York City. I just completed my Masters of Arts in Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology and specialize in digitally painterly science fiction and fantasy illustrations and character designs.

Previously, I received my BFA in Communciation Arts and Design with a concentration in Digital Imaging at Virginia Commonwealth University where I also minored in painting and printmaking. I always wanted to be an artist and I was fortunate enough to get a full scholarship which allowed me to pursue my dreams. After several years of making, showing and selling art and working as a graphic designer and sushi chef, I got a job in the graphics department at the Wall St. Journal and with the help of friends, made the move to New York City inspired by Andy Warhol, C.P. Cavafy and Inka Essenhigh “to be a part of it all.”

My photo-illustration work has been published in the several newspapers including the Wall St. Journal, C-Ville Weekly, Punchline and the Richmond Times-Dispatch where I was on staff as graphic artist / graphic designer. I have produced illustrations for flyers for nightclub promoters in Richmond, Virginia in the electronic dance music scene. I draw and self publishing mini-comics which have been sold in comic shops in Richmond Virginia and New York City. I have exhibited and sold my art work in galleries as well as alternative venues. I have also shown and sold art work to private collectors. Currently, I am focused on illustration for publishing and character design for entertainment industries.
