Wearing lots of hats and is kind of my thing. I sweat the details, I see the big picture, and I find creative solutions to problems.

Art Direction, UX, UI, Interactive + Visual Design

I have designed environmental graphics for Google, built interactive shopping experiences for Macy’s and Bloomingdale's, worked in branding and marketing for E*TRADE, created presentations and city-wide advertising for Capsule Pharmacy, produced video content for CBS Inside Edition, designed a New York City subway ad campaign for Wag.com, and built interactive menus and screen savers for OTG.

I have also created brand identities and logos for Partnership For Student Advocacy (PFSA), Design Technology Education Group (DTEG), and several startups such as Aviate Recruitment, Parallel Marketing, and Flavors Ice Cream. 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.
