IT IS ME, THE ONE WITH THE FACE.

I am a Digital Illustrator from Paterson, NJ. Though Illustration is my passion, I have been working as a Graphic Designer for 7 years and use those skills to push the compositions of my work. I am also an avid cosplayer and dress up for Conventions where I sell at Artist Alleys. I love to create work that makes a statement, tells a joke, or evokes emotion. My goal is to create a world for my art to live in, and share it with those who will appreciate it most.

I enjoy traveling, Halloween, obscure pop culture references, articulate conversation and eating all my veggies. I can speak both Sarcasm and Spanish. When I'm not working one can find me watching cartoons with my ghost dog, Sophie, and my rescue dogs, Andy and Mabel.

- Won an award for the Rare ARTist 2015 Contest, which raises awareness for those with especially rare diseases and disabilities. 

- Watched every episode of the Simpsons ever made (600+)
