Graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1999 with a BFA in Communication Arts and Design, I went to work at the Richmond Times-Dispatch. While primarily doing design, my college emphasis in illustration helped me carve a niche for myself gradually moving from ad design to advertising illustration, publication design, editorial illustration and becoming the lead marketing designer for all things branded RTD. There, I have won numerous Virginia Press Association awards including Best In Show in 2017 and 2018. I accept freelance projects (non-competing with the RTD) and commissions for original art. I currently live and work in Richmond, Virginia.
