Illustration / Art Direction

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
I'm an Art Director with more than a decade of advertising experience collaborating with clients and working with the best concept teams to create winning, creatively effective work.

I'm Illustrator inspired by the vibrant colors of every day that deliver a feeling of a short trip, taking my pen in hand all over the world for drawing for picture books, covers, magazines, record albums, murals, and more.

From Manila, Philippines, currently based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, yet always ready to be anywhere, anytime!
