Resume

 Because ideas are meant to be shared.

I am passionate about art telling a story. I enjoy finding creative solutions to unique problems, or our day-to-day problems. For me, making illustrations, animations, apps, or infographics is about creating a visual story that effectively communicates key concepts.
