Design is my passion. My expertise is my ability to bring an innovative brand experience to life on multiple platforms - from spatial to digital.
The interaction that happens between people and spaces can be transformative, creating a visceral response and emotional connection. Artists like Christo and Jeanne-Claude and designers like the Eames understood how to push these physical buttons to elicit an emotional experience.
Transcending and unifying these physical world connections to the online world is my mission. As one who grew up coding I hear silicon valley calling my name.
Ohio State University is my alma mater. My thesis, titled: “The Montage Experience”, explored new ideas in how users experience time in space through an exhibition design that won the coveted award of “Best in Category.”
While attending school I developed, designed and produced websites, products and advertisements for many brands, including: Anthropologie and Ohio State University.
New York is my design homebase. I have never enjoyed working so hard with so many talented people. Client work includes brands like CNN, NBC, Brown-Forman, Jack Daniels, At&t, MetLife, The New York Times, and Pepsi. Bringing my design mission to work, like the Eames did with IBM, is incredibly rewarding.
