Newark, NJ, US



Hello!  I am an award-winning designer with the insatiable desire to create.  Professionally, I have designed objects that range from economical watch packaging to an extravagant 15 foot tall installation for Mercedes-Benz fashion week.  My work spans the gap between art and design and draws inspiration from the rich complexities of the world around me.


MZB, New York, NY, US, Product and packaging designer

Working at MZB has given me exposure to the previously unfamiliar challenge of designing items that fit within a series of tight constraints dictated by our clients. The ability to competently design in a manner that satisfies clients and showcases my personal creativity has significantly broadened my knowledge.

POD DESIGN+MEDIA LLC ®, New York, NY, US, Product design intern

My internship at POD Design provided the unique opportunity to conceptualize and design a wide array of objects and correspond with manufacturers. I was able to begin projects at the point of conception and continue them through the final phases of manufacturing. Witnessing a concept I sketched on paper become a professionally made product on the market is truly rewarding. This valuable professional experience has helped me grow as a designer.
