Resumé

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE
I have over twenty years experiences as an illustrator and a graphic/web designer. My career has met with a wide range of projects and high profile opportunities, including employment and work with IBM and Apple. I have also contributed and enhanced the brand and visual presence of several independent artists, authors, musicians and professional theatre companies. I believe my super powers as a designer include an ability to work quickly and to adapt to various design styles. I love to immerse myself in projects where my illustration skills can be utilized, whether it's creating detailed photo-realistic illustrations, line art or simple yet, effective and dynamic iconography.
