This is the artwork for the upcoming full-length album by NC-based metalcore band, Valleys. The overall goal was to give off a strong, somber, and ominous look and feel that resonates with the music on the album. It will be produced in a digipak and will contain a booklet that features lyrics, promo photos of the band, as well as personal messages from the members. It is currently due to be released November 2017.

Brizzo's Sizzler Sauce is a potential hot sauce brand geared towards a modern crowd. It breaks away from the tacky, overused hot sauce design aesthetic that is seen everywhere in favor of something more modern.

It is also currently designed to be sold as a complete package, however individual sauce packages could be designed as well.

It also doubles as a giveaway with my contact information at the bottom, should someone like to initiate a project with me.

The main menu also features vegan/vegetarian alternatives for select dishes in order to appeal to a wider audience.

This is an exploded view of a snare drum that I own. Aside from it showing all the components of the drum, this could also be used as an instructional piece in an assembly manual. For this reason, it has been kept black and white and refrains from as many extra/unnecessary details as possible.
This is a small sample of my photography. The first three photographs take on more of an abstract nature. The rest are just experimenting with various techniques, lighting, and filters/composition.
