About Me

I like to draw, design, and write. I have studied many things and traveled many places, and my work is informed by a bright and ever-widening palette of visual, aural, and verbal experiences.

I have a strong undergraduate background in fine art, literature and critical theory; am a recent graduate of The University of Baltimore’s Publications Design MA Program; and am pursuing new professional experiences in Illustration, Print Design and Production, and Web Development / User Experience Design. Currently, I am the indie music buyer at The Sound Garden, an iconic independent record store  located in the historic waterfront neighborhood of Fells Point, and I am deeply involved in the Baltimore music community both as a musician and as a supporter of local bands.

In addition to design, I also have a great love for illustration. To see work that’s more art and drawing-focused, visit my illustration site, here.
