Thanks for stopping by

I am a NYC-based Design Director, specializing in branding, identity, art direction, and communication design. For over 15 years, I have led the design development of global marketing campaigns and brand identities, and managed design teams internally and with partner agencies.

My experience ranges across technology, entertainment, finance, auto, beauty and food brands. A select list of clients include: Nissan, Accenture, BNY Mellon, LG, New Balance, Estée Lauder, European Wax Center, SunTrust Bank, Jim Beam, Morgan Stanley, Sam’s Club, PepsiCo (Sabra, Stacy’s, True North), Barilla, HBO, & Lifetime Entertainment.

In my spare time I’m probably digging through obscure 70’s and 80’s disco for my D.J. gigs at historic gay bars in the city, "acting" in underrated art videos, or trying to find space for my overgrowing collection of vintage design books, mid-century modern furniture, and plants.
