I am a Cartoonist, Comic artist and Freelance Illustrator. In 2011 I graduated from The School of Visual Arts in New York City. All my teachers have worked at Marvel, DC, Vertigo and Dark Horse comics and have won awards for their illustration work at the Society of Illustrators.

I have sold my mini-comics, art and prints and shown my illustration portfolio at the New York Comic Con (3x), the Museum of Comic and Cartoon art festival (2x) and the Stathakion Cultural art exhibition (4x). As a freelance illustrator I have been commissioned to design book and comic covers, illustrate books, t-shirts, logos and draw portraits for couples for Valentine’s Day.

I have learned through personal experience that hard work, practice and dedication will always provide success in whatever one hopes to achieve. This is a quality that I have developed through hard work and is one of the first things I like to instill in my students. I love teaching and I enjoy helping my students evolve to reach their full potential. I believe there is no such thing as a stupid question. I encourage my students to ask as many questions as possible.
