I'm inclined to create because Our Creator designed me this way. I create because I was born into a family that nurtured my inclination towards the arts. For me, creating is a mode of exploration (the inanimate, animate and spiritual), communication (my story and the stories of others) and proclamation (the Good News message of Jesus the Christ).
I have been engaged in the visual arts for many years and specialize in illustration, fine art, and graphic design. I earned my BFA (with honors) in 2009 from the American Academy of Art, Chicago, with a focus in Illustration.
Over the years I've had the opportunity to work with organizations such as Lurie Children's Hospital, the Chi-Town Jazz Festival, Living the Language school, YMCA, the West Loop Community Organization, Moody Bible Institute, and others, along with many private clients, including Paul Harvey, Jr. I previously worked full-time as an in-house graphic designer for GModelo USA, LLC (the former U.S. merchandising branch of Mexico's Grupo Modelo); I am currently employed full-time as the in-house designer for The Moody Church in Chicago.
