A creative in metro Philidelphia
Designer and illustrator with a passion for crafting projects that promote community and tell exciting stories!
From an early age, I harbored a strong passion and love for drawing, reading and writing. This all stems back to my love of stories in virtually any way, shape or form, absorbing and creating tales in a wide variety of media. I love fiction, history, and cultural/social studies, all of which play a big part in my personal work. Over time, I have combined this love of storytelling with a knack for technological aptitude and web design, with over 20 years of experience designing and creating websites in a multitude of platforms.
