I was born and raised in the greater Philadelphia area. I went to school at Tyler School of Art and received my BFA in Fine Arts. During my time at Tyler, and after graduation, I worked in a print shop and started my own freelance business creating illustrations for editorial clients. Deciding to focus more on Graphic Design, I moved to Virginia to pursue my Master’s Degree. I graduated from Hollins University in 2015 with a MALS in Interdisciplinary Studies. Now my wife and I live in the Philadelphia area again with our beautiful daughter, Etta Grace.
