Since as early as I can recall, I’ve been a curious
My childhood was spent inventing games, writing stories, drawing, acting, and exploring in nature. And in my adolescence, I was always preoccupied with some creative personal project, be it sewing my own clothes, designing and coding websites, drawing portraits for friends, blogging or creating illustrated zines. While I may no longer be a child, I still spend my days creating, writing, inventing and sharing, with a good infusion of time spent exploring our great universe for answers.
In addition to running my own design practice directing creative and illustrating for the likes of The New York Times and IBM, I work as McAfee’s Illustrator and Visual Designer of Futures. I’m also a Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) fascinated with Astronomy, and the unending pursuit of cultivating my home. You can hire me to design, illustrate, code, consult or Creative Direct just about anything. Just make contact 🙂
