I'm a Philadelphia artist with over 10 years of freelancing experience. My most common requests are portraits, illustrations and murals. I'm a graduate of Tyler School of Art with a BA in art.

I'm hoping to tackle more murals to add to my extensive portfolio.

I'm a researching writer. I enjoy looking for new approaches to different topics, as well as different styles. I feel like every article has to fit the subject, and I'm the person completing the puzzle. I excel in poetry, but I also enjoy writing reviews, explanations, or comparisons. I would like to advance my craft, and since practice makes perfect I guess I'll be practicing as much as possible.
