About Me:
I am a Cleveland native with decades of drawing and illustration experience. As a youth, I sharpened my illustration skills be freelancing as a sign maker for small local businesses.

I acquired his Associates Degree in Graphic Design-Illustration at Cuyahoga Community College. While attending Tri-C, my artwork was featured in two of their Annual Juried Student Exhibits (2001-02”).

My alternate interest in character animation inspired me to enroll at the International Academy Of Design & Technology in Tampa, Florida, where I acquired computer animation skills. Today I occasionally freelance as an illustrator while fine-tuning my character animation skills at home in my spare time.
