About Me

  • LinkedIn Social Icon
  • Instagram Social Icon

I've worked as a graphic designer for the past seven years, beginning my career at the University of California Irvine and have since gained marketing experience in the apparel, tech, and game development industries. I've developed creative and marketing content in a wide variety of mediums, including logos, catalogs, packaging, motion graphics, illustrations, and assets for social media. I specialize in Adobe Photoshop but also have experience in Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere, After Effects (including TrapcodeParticular and C4D), and working with tools developed in the Unity engine.

Dean Bottino took my idea and made it into a reality. I needed a corporate identity and an advertising plan for my educational firm. He worked quickly and came up with outstanding course descriptions and marketing materials for our upcoming work in 2017."

I'm currently working as a motion graphic artist for the YouTube channel Wisecrack, in which I create pixel art based animations for their "8-Bit Philosophy" series using Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. The first video I produced for them has over 720,000 views as of January 2017.


In my free time, I enjoy making fanart for video games and movies, particularly 8 and 16-bit style pixel art resembling the video games I grew up playing. I still enjoy playing video games, as well as animation, reading, and listening to podcasts. I also really like listening to 60s and 70s Soul, Funk, and Jazz music.


I have stores on Society6 and Redbubble where some of my art can be purchased on a variety of products such as prints, t-shirts, phone cases, bedspreads, shower curtains, and many others. I also have an Instagram that I update with art I don't feature in my portfolio.
