about.

See it all on my resume

I create & design simply because it makes me happy. There is nothing else I could picture myself doing for the rest of my life. When I encounter a new assignment I am eager to see where it ends up. I tend to pay close attention to color and typography. All of the work I do is inspired from other work I’ve done & other creative minds.

Since a young age I was interested in art & creativity. My father, Jimmie, was an artist as well & growing up I was always awe-stricken when viewing my father’s illustrations & portraiture. With the belief that one day I could be as good of a “drawer” as my father, & for sheer entertainment, I would draw & color all the time.

Years later we got our first computer & in fifth grade, I started experimenting creating a web page from the old Yahoo! Geocities. I created a small website with around five links about how school is so boring. I labeled it “Tired of School.” Looking back, it's pretty funny but I was proud of my site & got a few hits from web surfers. In comparison to today, I’ve come a long way.

In conjunction with learning HTML, I began to experiment with painting outside the digital world. I started with watercolors & then switched over to oil and now work mainly with acrylic. I was first inspired to paint by artists on PBS such as Bob Ross, Donna Dewberry, & others. By age 13, my painting skill & technique developed greatly & a few paintings were selected to be featured in numerous nursing homes throughout New Jersey.

I recently graduated from The Art Institute of Philadelphia with a major in Graphic Design. I plan to use my graphic design degree and my web design knowledge to continue doing freelance work. Who knows where I'll end up. I'm just happy doing what I love.
