The Beginning

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design Graphic Design program, I immediately began work as art director for Martha Stewart Living Magazine where I learned how to produce and art direct custom photo shoots, creating unique images that tell visual stories. Still passionate about my own studio work, the graduate painting program at Pratt Institute was a logical next step. While in graduate school, I began freelance graphic design work with a variety of companies and industries such as Avon, Dow Jones, Ensambe Travel and New York Presbyterian Hospital.
