I have an extensive experience working in the commercial art field. I focus on illustration, cartooning (both editorial and illustrative) and graphic design. My career has included working freelance as well as working internally for agencies/design firms and in corporate creative departments in positions ranging from graphic designer to art director. Among the many projects I have worked on I've illustrated a wide variety of children's books and educational materials. These have covered a wide array of topics using different illustrative styles appropriate to the subject matter both in traditional media and digital. My work includes creating editorial cartoons for a newspaper, creating illustrations for advertising, storyboarding as well as creating icons for Fortune 200 and 500 companies. I take every project as an opportunity to grow and develop new skills and abilities.
