I'm an art director and illustrator based in NYC. I solve creative problems using experience and strategy, and I love what I do.
As a freelancer, I work with a wide array of publications, small businesses and clients to create editorial and brand illustrations, and also with a number of agencies on ad campaigns for brands like Lay's, Tresemmé and Nespresso. Fun fact: I'm also a published children's book illustrator.
For the past 7 years, I've gained loads of experience in the diverse creative fields of advertising, fashion, and stationery. Before freelance life, I was an Art Director at mcgarrybowen working on Aussie (P&G), Verizon and Chase. Prior to that, I led the design team creating illustrations and stationery for ladies who lunch at a luxury letterpress boutique, and before that I was a Brand Manager (and employee #4) for an ethical fashion, collegiate apparel start-up that grew from 10 to 125 accounts in 1 year down in North Carolina.
I learned how to think at UVA, and i learned how to draw from life, screen print and more at SVA.
I like: traveling, neon colors, collecting seashells and eating fish tacos.
And here's what's going on in my life right now:
