I’m a multi-disciplinary designer who explores identity in its many forms. For the bread and butter, I often seek out opportunities to make entertaining work that represents unique stories and real experiences. As a person, I like to participate in shared approaches to evolve our understanding of “taste.” I believe that good design relies on responsibility and collaboration.

I earned a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2011 and a MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) in 2023.  I live in New York where I’m an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at St. John’s University. I was previously an Art Director at WarnerMedia/HBO and have created work for World Wrestling Entertainment, Tennis, Newsweek, Seventeen Magazine, and worked as a contributing production artist for independent films and Oscar-nominated movies.

The only thing I love more than making stuff is my semi-feral cat, Santino, and Rhode Island bakery pizza.
