I graduated from the Academy of Art University in 1998 and have been a freelance illustrator since then. My focus has been digital illustration, specifically vector art. Over the years, I've added some graphic design, animation, and interactivity to my skill set.
Jobs I've done have included:
• Editorial Illustration
• Packaging Illustration
• Book Illustration and Layout
• Advertising Layout
In 2008 I started teaching at the Academy of Art University. The focus of the classes I've written is vector and interactive art, specifically Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Flash.
Although my focus has been on vector tools and illustration, I'm also familiar with raster tools and page layout. For a more detailed list of the software I use and the clients I've worked for, see the About section.
Take a look at my portfolio. It's divided into categories so it should be easy to find the kinds of examples you may be interested in.

Icons – A series of icons created for the Berkeley Tuolumne Camp.
Logos – Various logos created for clients and events.

Heart & Soul – A little comic I drew for a while.
