Wearing multiple hats is in my nature. I sweat the details, I see the big picture, and I solve problems with creativity.

Art Direction, UX, UI, Interactive + Visual Design

I have designed environmental graphics for Google, interactive shopping experiences for Macy’s and Bloomingdale's, New York City subway and taxi ad campaigns for Capsule pharmacy and Wag.com, branding and marketing for E*TRADE, video content for CBS Inside Edition, and interactive menus and screen savers for OTG.

I have created visual identities and logos for Partnership For Student Advocacy (PFSA), Design Technology Education Group (DTEG), and several startups and small companies. Before moving to New York, I led a team in re-imagining a design education magazine and launching its digital presence. We laced the magazine with augmented reality, and created a mobile app and social network to bring students, alumni, and instructors together. My studies include advertising, graphic design, fine art, art history, photography, and philosophy in America and Spain.
