I am a designer and educator interested in creating experiences that better connect people together and improve lives.
In a nut-shell, I like to find opportunities in my work to create meaning, evoke emotion, and help people better enjoy life because we only get one of them. I have over 9 years of experience in agency and in house creative studios designing in areas including identity and brand development, UI/UX, data visualization, print collateral, and social media.
Currently, I'm an Art Director at Ridge Marketing & Design building brands and websites for clients in healthcare, technology, beauty, and finance industries. Previously, I was Senior Designer at Success Academy where I managed a small team developing all brand assets for the network of charter schools that advocates for better education in NYC.
I teach undergraduate courses in graphic design. Schools that I've taught at include Caldwell University, Seton Hall University, and NYC College of Technology.
I hold an MFA in Graphic Design from Vermont College of Fine Arts and a BA in Graphic Design from Seton Hall University.
