Thank you for visiting my site.

I am an illustrator, designer and printmaker based in New York. My work has appeared in projects for Oak Hill Capital Partners, Harkness Capital Partners, New York Insight Meditation Center, and Unified for Global Healing.

In addition to offering design and illustration work to clients from various sectors, I create artwork with a focus on soccer. Currently, I am illustrating every Liverpool goal of the Premier League's 2016/17 season as part of a collaborative charity fundraiser Gift of a Goal.

My other work includes portrait series of players from the U.S. Women’s National Team, New York Red Bulls and Tottenham Hotspur. Most recently, I have created ball maps of Premier League games, which are hand-drawn diagrams tracking the movement of the ball over the duration of a match. The ball maps originated with the 2014 World Cup and later expanded to include special matches such as El Clasico, Euro 2016, and the 2015 Women's World Cup. For the Women's World Cup,  I have also drawn live action sketches during several games in Canada and created illustrations for Shwapsies, a collaborative exhibition of digital "trading cards."

When not creating art, I am also involved in group projects to support and promote the work of other artists and creatives. I administer the soccer artist collective Wundergol and am a regular contributor to online literary journal Sula Collective. I am also pleased to serve on the Executive Committee of soccer magazine Unusual Efforts.

I am available for commission on projects in publishing, marketing, advertising or editorial, and look forward to hearing from you.
