Let me tell you a
little about myself:

Growing up in the suburbs of Massachusetts, I was rarely found without a pencil or crayon in my hand. As early as first grade, I began writing and illustrating my own children’s books. Sure, they may have been crudely drawn and lacked crucial character and plot development, but ever since those childhood days, I dreamt of a career in the wonderful world of art.
Throughout high school, I loaded my notebooks, assignment sheets, and anything else I could get my hands on with countless sketches and doodles. During these “rebellious teenage years”, I expanded my love affair with art to different mediums including photography, film, mixed media collages, printmaking, sculpting, and music (in fact, I am a self taught guitarist and keyboardist). Soon I began designing posters for friends' bands which lead me to graphic design and the Savannah College of Art & Design.
After graduation, I took up a few freelance gigs in Savannah before landing a job as a designer at the advertising firm, BFG Communications; where I worked for several different clients including Coca-Cola, Mello Yello, Cartoon Network, Treasury Wine Estates, Lance Crackers, Mellow Mushroom, Harry Potter, and many others.
In October of 2012, I moved to New York City where I began working at Reitdesign, creating work for clients including Barnes & Noble, The NYC Buildings Department, and The Economist.
In 2014 I returned to BFG Communications, becoming an art director in their expanded NYC office, working on a number of Campari brands including Espolón Tequila, Bulldog Gin, and Cabo Wabo Tequila.
In August of 2015, I took a dream job at BLT Communciations and moved to Los Angeles to start working on key art for film, television and several award-winning Broadway shows including To Kill A Mockingbird, Hello, Dolly!, Shuffle Along, The Crucible, Carousel, The Iceman Cometh, and A Doll’s House Part 2 .
I have also worked on a number of freelance projects with agencies such as SME Branding and Group SJR, working with clients including GE, Target, Xerox, and Home Depot.
