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 am currently in the process of publishing my first cookbook.
