Hello! I am an illustrator and graphic designer living in Tampa Bay and working with clients internationally. My years of work in ad agencies and corporations as well as heading my own Studio have given me a depth of experience that informs my design and illustration projects. I am available for freelance projects in illustration and design, I frequently coordinate both, thus my brand as “Design-a-strator”.
