Summary

I am a designer/illustrator located in southern California working primarily as a designer for Games, Advertising, and Television.  I have a wealth of experience in design, 2d Animation, and layout.  I am proficient in the Adobe suite and Toonboom Harmony. I’ve spent most of my career pitching shows to large networks while working full time as an animator/illustrator during the day for such companies as Nickelodeon and Disney.   I am known for my ability to work fast and meet very tight deadlines.  When you hire me,  you not only get a skilled designer but also an experienced animator who has worked in virtually every facet of the design industry. In my spare time I make cartoons for YouTube starring my children and develop show pitches.
