New York, NY, US



A well rounded thinker when it comes to design and crafting experiences, I am quick on my feet when it comes to resolving problems in high-pressure situations. Thanks to over 4 years working with Rafael de Cardenas, I have learned how to interact with clients and not only keep them extremely happy, but also corral them to a specific target. For the past two years, I have had the amazing opportunity to travel internationally frequently for work to locations from London to Singapore and for timespans as short as 2 days to as long as 2 months. Always looking for new challenges, I have taken over the role as Brand Director for Bay Kitchen Bar in East Hampton and BKB in NYC, using it as a canvas to explore my interests in restaurant design and branding.
