Side Quests

This page is dedicated to my side projects outside of product design. I am a lover of all types of design - in here you'll find a gallery of graphic and visual design, costume design, and more fun stuff!

Fear Not Ourselves Alone

Fear Not Ourselves Alone is "the last punk band from Queens, New York." They brought me aboard in 2020 to design a few t-shirts inspired by their music.

Magic Wheelchair

Magic Wheelchair is a nonprofit that builds costumes for kids in wheelchairs. In 2017, I joined a team of volunteers to build a Halloween costume for Iker, a 13 year old with muscular dystrophy. He wanted to be Yoshi on a golden Mario Kart:
