I am a NYC-based art director and photographer. I love design, transforming brands, and creating seemingly-simple solutions to complex problems. I am excited about photography and travel. I'm obsessed with having personal projects to keep myself sharp. I want to collaborate and grow as a designer, photographer, cook, Italian-speaker, film-watcher and beyond.
I am a senior manager of graphic design with 10 years of professional experience. I have worked with startups, agencies, non-profits, and technology companies in a number of different capacities including director of marketing, creative director, senior graphic designer, and senior graphic design manager. I am able to seamlessly transition between projects – from UI to marketing collateral to event materials to web advertisements to email. I am highly flexible, communicative, and process-driven.
As a manager and art director, I tailor my expectations to help empower employees to be successful by turning areas of improvement into areas of opportunity. I aim to give feedback that doesn’t just tell what to do, but I ask questions to guide growing designers in a direction of curiosity and not in a direction of just doing what they think I, or other stakeholders, may want. In my current position, I manage design managers (with their own direct reports) along with mid-level designers.
I am a self-taught photographer and have shot a variety of projects – from staged food shoots to graduations to architectural shoots.
The fun stuff:
I run a food blog and love to travel. I have been to Budapest, Vienna, Berlin, Köln, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Montréal, Vancouver, and Paris as well as many different cities in the USA. My favorite cities to travel to are Vienna and Berlin; I've been twice to both and I can't wait to go back.
I'm most excited about traveling to Italy (soon, I hope!) and my next dream destinations would be Tokyo, Seoul, and Nigeria.
