I am a visual artist, Illustrator, and graphic designer. Originally from Kentuckiana, I received a BFA from The Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2004. I now reside in Louisville, KY with my beautiful wife and daughter.

My work has been featured in publications and galleries across the US. I work on a variety of projects including (but not limited to) editorial, conceptual, and advertising illustration. My work is mostly executed with collage and acrylic paint, along with other mixed media.

Always excited for new opportunities, I look forward to helping with your next project. Add me to you contacts and let's get in touch.
