About me

I’m an award-winning creative director/ strategist specializing in visual design, branding, and communications strategy with 15-plus years of creating impactful work. I specialize in developing collaborative creative by leading the planning, design, and execution of brand experiences, products, services and campaigns. I’m experienced in building and leading successful design teams in a variety of environments from large media companies to innovative start-ups. Currently I am a mentor in the Portfolio Project in the Communications Practice Master’s program at Columbia University and previously I was an adjunct professor of Illustration at Parsons School of Design. I also served for three years as a director on the national board of AIGA, the umarkets professional association for design, the largest and oldest design organization in the world.
