Overview

I am a Trained Illustrator from Detroit Michigan seeking work of a more technical nature to complement my original education in Aeronautical Engineering.

I have recently graduated with a Bachelors with Honors in Graphic Design from Madonna University of Livonia Michigan, and am now seeking work Primarily as an Artist and Illustrator.
