I am an illustrator, graphic designer, and photographer, living and working in Portland, Oregon. I specialize in apparel design, as well as logos and designs for print.

I illustrate, design, and print everything in my studio in St. Johns, Portland. I use fabric-specific, water-based, eco-friendly inks, which are then heat-cured, permanently establishing the ink in the fabric. All apparel is safely washed and dried.

My diverse background and multicultural experiences have greatly influenced my design. Growing up on the coast of the Red Sea in Egypt, I became a scuba diver and fell in love with all aspects of life in the sea. In my early twenties I moved to Switzerland and spent my time there exploring European culture. In my late twenties, I headed to the United States, first to New York, then to California, and finally to Portland, where I have made my home with my wife, daughter, and son.

I am also available for commissioned design and printing, as well as logo design, and other print-based graphic design.
