With well over a decade of experience in communication design and advertising along with a lifetime in the arts, my work combines engaging visuals and unique narratives to build brands.

My design experience goes back to making print publications in my high school graphics studio. Following my passion, the journey has taken me from Miami to Minneapolis to London, New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and now San Francisco.

I'm versed in collaborating with teams of all levels and look for opportunities to elevate brands through innovation—applying design thinking to marketing challenges and above all, entertain. That's me next to a giant turd puppet.

Bred from a family of artisans, designers, and fashion industry leaders, my mother was a homemaker and artist in her own right who filled my creative toolbox from an early age, while my Dad ran the family business. He was a great merchant and fashion buyer presiding over retail shops on the east coast known for couture and many of today's luxury brands. Growing up, I'd dress window-displays, and dinner-table conversations revolved around movies, football, and the latest runway collections. I'm not a trust-fund-kid, unfortunately, but absolutely filthy-rich with experience. Here's a bit more if your interested.  

When not in maker mode, you'll find me growing veggies in my community garden and exploring San Francisco's food scene in search of the sourest sourdough bread...I think it's a toss-up between Tartine and Rosalind Bakery and would love to hear your opinion.
