I am a partner in a multidisciplinary design studio that produces interpretive and exhibit design for arts, culture, and corporate clients. In the past I worked as a freelance illustrator. This is not my work portfolio.

This website is dedicated to my off-work-hours creative pursuits and explorations, including painting, printmaking, drawing, as well as personal video projects on subjects that interest (plants & animals, and art).
