About

Hello. My name is Austin. I am a graphic designer and frontend web developer based in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I started drawing and painting at a young age. My early training was from a local artist, while growing up in Massachusetts and I have been creating ever since. I graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in 2002 with a degree in animation and design.

I've been professionally designing print and websites for over 10 years. After college I worked for a company that specialized in constructing tradeshow booths for local and international corporations. My job was to create the graphics for their displays. I currently work for a non-profit organization, creating their print design and developing their websites.
