Hello,

I am an illustrator and recent architecture graduate living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.




This website represents a collection of my professional illustration work as well as my student work completed during my studies at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto.

I continue to work on the occasional illustration project while also working as an architectural intern at Lateral Office in Toronto.
