I am a graphic/artist illustrator. I have over 12-plus years of professional experience in the graphic arts. When I'm not designing or creating I spend my time with my family. I am married and have a 6 year-old son and 16 year-old stepdaughter. I also love animals and have 4 cats and 1 very spoiled English Bulldog. I consider myself to to be very lucky to be at a job I truly love. Not many people actually get up every morning and are happy to be going to work. For me, my job, my family and my life make me smile. Carpediem!
