I was born and raised in rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania where I spent the majority of my childhood drawing unicorns and being chased by my best friend’s pet goats. Many sketchbooks later I attended Bucks County Community College and graduated with an Associates Degree in Fine Art and later, I recieved a BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. I have been working as a freelance illustrator ever since. My work has been commissioned by a diverse group of clients in advertising, publishing, editorial and the web. I also enjoy working on a variety of side projects including private fine art commissions and exhibits in galleries. When I’m not in the studio, you can usually find me at the nearest ice cream stand.

Thanks for looking around!
