a bit About ME

I am a modern graphic artist and designer, whose work captures a bits and pieces of our modern world. From simple iconic art to layered visual puzzles, I see my art and designs to have an architectural spirit — made up of stylized shapes, lines, contrast and patterns. Given my background in architecture, graphic design and advertising, I bring years of firsthand experience and knowledge in truly understanding the two-dimensional world of graphics, the dimensionality of spaces and the need to stand out and be a strong part of the visual solution. My artwork is a narrative blend of understanding purpose, solving real problems and capturing the vibe of a place, concept, or thing. My graphic interpretation of the world strikes a delightful balance between thought and emotion—creating a meaningful connection to viewers. 

I create modern graphic art and designs for various projects, such as:  environments, public spaces, retail spaces, interiors, character designs, the children's market and various art licensing markets.

I studied architecture, graduating with a Bachelors of Architecture degree, before switching to the world of art and design. I then went on to graduate from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA with a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree. I live in sunny, Southern California with my beautiful wife, three kids and my let’s-just-say interesting dog, Scout.
