About

I have had the great fortune to work at some of the best institutions, publishers and creative corporations with some of the world’s greatest designers, editors, writers, photographers, illustrators, filmmakers, fine artists, developers and information technology talent.

I work on publishing projects, website and interactive design, logo and brand design, marketing design, video and motion graphic direction, magazine design and redesign, packaging and product design, exhibition design, signage and informational graphics. My experience has allowed me to become an expert in each stage of the creative process: strategy, editorial, design, production, marketing, and analysis. 

For the last 10+ years I have been working at School of Visual Arts in New York City. I was charged with an array of responsibilities: managing Visual Arts Press, the design studio at SVA, which is responsible for a majority of the web entities at the college, design of nearly all printed publications, and marketing recruitment creative strategies and implementation in multiple mediums. SVA NYC is at a record high for applications. I was proud to contribute to the effort of polishing and improving School of Arts image and position as one of the elite cultural institutions in the United States.
