About Me

What I do and why I do it

Bio

I found my passion for digital design the first time I opened Adobe Illustrator in a digital media class at the University of Cincinnati. After a few online coding tutorials and a minor in Fine Arts, I landed design internships and later jobs at startups and ad agencies. These have given me a wide range of skills in digital design, front-end development and vector illustration that I expand upon every day.

After hours, I enjoy drawing, tasting bourbon, and watching the Pittsburgh Penguins win Stanley Cups.
