About Me

I have been drawing since I could pick up a pencil, painting since I could hold a brush, and doing digital illustration and design since I taught myself how to use Adobe Illustrator. I am originally from Somerville, MA (just outside Boston), and am currently living in Portland, OR. I am always coming up with new ideas and concepts to draw, illustrate, paint, or design.

Music, traveling, typography, character and logo design all influence my work, ranging from realistic drawings to abstract paintings, typographic song lyric illustrations to custom logos, abstract and surreal illustrations to poster designs. My friends, my family, traveling, snowboarding, hiking, Mega Man, cartoons, comics, horror novels and movies, indie rock and electronic music, playing board and card games are some of the things I enjoy.

I graduated Bentley University in 2005 with a B.S. in Management and Accounting, and got a Certificate in Illustration from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2010. Recently, I launched this website and started taking on commission and freelance work, so let me know if you’d like to work with me.
