I'm a Chicago-based Creative Designer and Teaching Artist, working at the crossroads of UI/UX, graphic design, illustration and education.
Raised by foreign service workers in the 1990s, I am a son of many places and of nowhere in particular. Along the way I have become an adaptive, open-minded, and empathetic person. I am always learning new skills, languages, cooking techniques, you name it. I have a voracious appetite for all kinds of music. When I have the time, I like to make it as well.
After earning my MFA in Studio Painting in 2011, I planted my roots in Chicago, working in the world of arts and education ever since. I am inspired by fellow artists and teachers and I steep myself in history, striving to better contribute to my city and its people through art and design.
I am currently looking for opportunities to contribute my skills and perspective to organizations that make positive social impact.
