I am a graphic designer and educator based in NYC. Currently I am an art director at the School of Visual Arts, where me and my team design books, catalogs, magazines, websites, identities and more for SVA. Expanding on my design expertise, I also help to develop business strategies from the designer's point of view to bring clarity and focus to my client's message, as well as editorial development, planning and UX design. 

My process is to work closely with others to produce unexpected results by careful examination of content, audience and the holistic integration of design solutions for multiple platforms. I aspire to solve the problems you didn't know you had. I most of all enjoy collaborating with others on projects for our fellow humans. 

My work has won awards from the AIGA, Art Directors Club, Communication Arts, Creative Review, D&AD, Graphis, HOW, I.D., Print, Red Dot, The One Show and the UCDA.
