I’m a visual artist and creative designer based in Silicon Valley.
I’m currently available for freelance work.
What I've been up to
I have begun working as graphic designer since 1998 with a wide range of clients and industries from banks to food companies.
As a designer, I am a firm believer in creating a bold statement. Many of my images are based on an underlying grid, where every element finds itself aligned with another shape on the page.
I've begun photo shooting since 2002. I shoot professional photography for many brands as well as hundreds of small niche clients in a range of different industries. Fantastic product photography is an essential part of any e-commerce site, commercial graphic design, advertisment, and video production.
