"MY WORK" AKA:

WTF Am I Doing?

I wear many different hats...

I'm a storyteller first – The medium i use depends on the story.

I've worked professionally in a number of fields, including graphic design, illustration, tattooing, corporate identity development, content marketing, product development, event marketing and fine art. The following portfolios offer samples of my work divided by industry.

Illustration

I got my BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. My work as a tattoo artist depended heavily on this skill set, but I also had the privilege of doing some work for publishers, and major brands like Samsung and Skillet. Here are some examples of my work:

Graphic Design

I started studying graphic design in high school, at the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology. I even taught there for a few years after college. I've done graphic design work both freelance and in-agency for a number of clients across the globe. Here are some examples of my work:

Apparel

I got my start in apparel working with Kotis Design. I worked with them for 3 years doing custom graphics for apparel and merch for clients like icanhazcheeseburgerFacebook, and a number of colleges and universities across the US. Eventually, I made Ugly Apparel with the help of the Corzo Center for the creative Economy and Wells Fargo. Here are some examples of my work:

Paintings

I have always loved illustration. Most of my commercial work is digital, but I still enjoy painting for myself.   This portfolio is a collection of my personal work as an artist.
