Who, me?

I am a news artist, illustrator
and designer based in San Diego. Over the past twelve years my work has been featured in a variety of print outlets, from newspapers to CD covers. I still get super excited before each project goes to press. Please check out my online portfolio, and I think you will be convinced that I am a professional who is well suited for your next visual project.

I offer a commitment to efficiency and your full satisfaction.

Even if we don’t get to work together, I’ll still go skateboarding or ride bikes with you.
