Summary

My experience as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer has led me to embrace modern technology and create a variety of styles of illustrations, emulating natural media. My expertise in various computer software has given me the ability to adapt and communicate ideas from rough pencil sketch to final digital output.I have worked at Morgan Stanley as Spot Illustrator creating various Corporate Illustrations for a number of years. Teaming with various Morgan Stanley Art Directors to create an “Iconic” character to be used in various Morgan Stanley in house journal ads and brochures. Illustrated portraits of various celebrity figures for Discover Card to be animated on the “Jumbo Tron” in Times Square during the New Year countdown.

I strive to give my clients the most superior and cost efficient solutions in this vastly competitive market.

I am currently Freelancing, taking on various projects and challenges.
