Art Director, Letterer, Illustrator

Los Angeles, CA, USA
I always felt very lucky of having the luxury of working on what I really love. And I do it because I set a goal and I followed it. I am still following it! As Chet Baker said: " The good way to go in life is to find something that you really enjoy doing, and then learn to do it better than anybody, and you won't have any problems". I understand "do it better than anybody" as an encouragement to practice, work hard and since practice makes perfect, I believe that with perseverance anything is achievable .
