Education: BA of Illustration from Syracuse University
Work History: My first job upon graduation was working for a small studio that colored comic books. Our studio colored comics from a variety of different publishers including, Akklaim, Image, Marvel and I also colored numerous covers for Wizard, the comics magazine.
Building on my computer skills, I moved into the accessory/licensing industry. For over four years I designed backpacks and handbags featuring licensed characters from Disney, Nickelodeon, Warner Bros., and Peanuts.
I then moved into the publishing industry, working at HarperCollins Publishers and Hachette Book Group, designing special edition book covers, catalogs, and promotional materials, and websites. I currently work for Builder Designs in Olathe, where I design and build websites.
