Education: Bachelors of Art (specialization in illustration): Rowan University 2010-2012 Associates of Arts: Gloucester County Community College 2008-2010 Expertise: Traditional Arts (drawing, painting- watercolor, acrylics) and the Digital Arts (Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign). Awards: My Sonic the Hedgehog piece came in the "Top 50" in the USA for Sega's "Sonic CD Fanart" contest. Experience: -Freelance comic book colorist for Archie Comics ("Mega Man," "Sonic the Hedgehog," "Sonic Universe") and various other clients -Malala Yousafzai portrait was recognized by the Malala Fund and the "He Named Me Malala" project. -Owns licensed brand of characters and patterns "Puttiko," which is sold as various products (bank books, checks, address labels, etc) through Check Advantage. -Made concept toy designs at WeVeel, the fastest growing company in Pennsylvania, and the 27th fastest growing private company in the Untied States. -Showcased artwork in several galleries, such as "Arch Enemy Arts" gallery in Philadelphia, PA. -Lectured about Art Licensing to students as a guest speaker at Rowan University several times. -Other work I have done for clients (both international and national) includes book covers, portraiture, illustrations, etc. Other Interests/Experiences: Music, movies, writing, traveling, fashion (participated for Japanese fashion designer "Sixh" fashion show in Baltimore for 1,200 people), playing sports (Academic All-American in college track and soccer). I am an illustrator whose goal is to visually tell a story to the viewer with human thought and emotion. Human thought and emotion are what drives people to make decisions, take action, feel empathy, learn from mistakes, and make sacrifices for other people or themselves. As an illustrator, my mission is to take these elements and form them in a visual context so people can understand without verbal explanation. Thoughts and emotions are a universal language among humans, and they are what break the barriers of different languages and cultures for the world to be connected. Accomplishing such endeavors takes time, dedication, passion, and prioritizing (not to mention inspiration!). I tackled school and sports teams the same way by always doing my best, because I know whoever I am working with is doing their best. As humans, connecting and understanding each other is significant to achieve what we want and need to do. I can promise that my work will always be done with professionalism and heart. I specialize in portraiture and illustrations. Regarding comic work, I specialize in coloring, covers, splash pages, and concept art. At the moment I do not do pencils or inking for comic book art.
