I'm a small town kid from Northern Illinois that made the migration from the cornfields of the Midwest to Chicago-land (and then Chicago itself) in pursuit of my passion of art and love of live music.
My background is Fine Art, and I have a BFA in Illustration and an MFA in Painting from Northern Illinois University.
Throughout my career I've worn many hats as a freelance Graphic Artist, working my way up in the freelance arena in Chicagoland as a production artist, designer, illustrator and front-end developer. Working long hours, weekends, traveling all over the Chicago suburbs taking advantage of every opportunity that came my way.
After a long journey as freelancer and full-time creative I'm currently working as a UX Designer, creating sites and applications for a variety of industries. I leverage my skills towards technology, addressing a variety of issues with creativity.
When I'm not designing user interfaces for clients, illustrating, or coding, you can see my work posted on my instagram and social media, or out enjoying the Chicago music scene, or hitting the local bike trail to jog and bike.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on social to request a commission or to work with me!
I'm especially interested in any illustration projects you may have!
