Since I graduated in 2007 from Kendall College of Art and Design, I have had 5 plus years experience in both Graphic Design and Illustration.

I have illustrated 3 books for, and illustrated my 4th book for The Unique Tales is a comic anthology that I participated in by illustrating 5 comic pages from a script. You can read the comic I illustrated here .

I am experienced in Adobe Illustrator, PhotoShop and Indesign. When working on graphic designs I can create your business logo, wedding or baby announcement cards, brochures, flyers, posters, or CD covers. When working on your project, I want to stress that I create what you want to see and I do not mind any changes in the process.
