Senior Product Designer / Illustrator
San Francisco, California
My design career began after graduating from Jackson State University in Jackson, MS. In 2003, I moved to San Francisco to pursue an MFA in Graphic Design at Academy of Art University. I fell in love with the Bay Area and have spent most of my design career here.
My professional experience has included freelance, contract and in-house design roles for publishing, creative studios, tech start-ups and enterprise software companies. I've designed everything from print to trade-show booths to mobile apps and websites.
What I love most about design is that it's both the act of making and the artifact of that process. It is the creation of an experience whether turning a page, navigating a mobile app or finding your way through an exhibition. Design speaks. It carries messages that make an impact and move us.
Illustration was my entry point into being a creative. I've been published a handful of times for my comic book illustration and it's something I enjoy in my free-time. When not drawing or designing, I indulge in video games, comics and Afro-futurist fiction.
