TYLER SCHOOL OF ART

I’m currently a second year MFA grad student studying Graphic & Interactive Design. Before coming back to school I was a full-time freelancer working with small businesses in Philly, New Jersey, Texas and California. Since coming back to school I’ve been enjoying self-authoring projects, cultivating illustration styles and collaborating with my fellow grad students. I’m excited to get back into the working world and having (a little) more free time after graduating.
