I have 18 years experience as a working designer including 8 years as an agency art director. I'm the kind of designer who will still sketch everything out on paper first.

I'm currently social distancing from the COVID-19 global pandemic in my Los Angeles apartment with my wife and two cats.

I'm available for freelance work.

Please hire me for your thing.
