I started in hospitality and have since transitioned into a career I love as a graphic designer. I’m good with the written word and I get technology. Now-a-days, I find myself employed full time as an in-house graphic designer in New York City. When I’m not designing at my regular job, I’m designing here. That’s how much I love what I do.
I’ve had over 14 years of experience working with the public; learning what makes people tick. I work hard to create products and entertainment that resonates with people and speaks to the times we live in. I put a little bit of my world-view into everything I create and I’m not afraid to be a little irreverent.
I love fonts, title sequences, food and wine. I like making things that are funny, informative, and beautiful. If I can work in a poignant observation of the world we live in, even better.
I’ve also been known to make a video or two. You should check them out.
I’d love to meet and talk more about design or simply swap stories about our experiences in the industry. Until then, I invite you to explore and shop around. Enjoy.
