Who I am

I am a graphic designer based in Orlando Florida with over 20 + years of experience.  I was Born and raised in Westchester New York.  After graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology with a BA in Graphic/Fine Arts, I worked in NYC for 2 years.  I headed to the sunshine state in 1996, where I have been enjoying living in Orlando Florida and I have furthered myself, personally and professionally.

I have a passion for designing, since I was a child I always loved anything related to design, so I started to create artwork at a young age. I’m always keeping my eye on the latest trends over typography, layouts, color combinations etc….

Whether working with teams or directly with the client, I am able to come up with creative ideas quickly, and my proficiency which enables me to develop high end graphics.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.
