Hi Everyone!

I’ve been lurking around this forum for a while now, and I’m excited to finally post my work here. If you are interested in hearing about my background and career goals, feel free to read below:
I’m a recent college graduate focusing in graphic design. As I continue to advance in my field, I hope to work in the game industry designing either marketing campaigns, apparel, or user interfaces for video games. It is a broad goal, but I’m still zeroing in on my specific focus.

In my free time, I have been working as the Publications Director for Setsucon, Penn State’s local anime convention, designing merchandise, advertisements, and the programming booklet. With time permitting, sometimes I get the opportunity to experiment with acrylics on canvas.

My next education based goal includes returning to school to earn a MFA in Graphic Design. At this point, I want to expand my experiences and grow as a designer in the real world.

Here are some examples of my work:

Pokémon for Japan
I was tasked to create a poster that promotes a charity Pokémon tournament benefiting Japan Relief.


No Refund T-Shirts
A local theatre troupe, No Refund Theatre, asked me to design a shirt as a club fundraiser.


Super Mario Canvas & First Strike
I wanted to explore the art of digital landscapes in the 8-bit era using traditional media.



My current project is revising a t-shirt design from this past semester. It’s missing something, but I’m lost for ideas at the moment.


Any comments and critiques on these pieces are welcome. Thanks in advance for your help!
