Info


Currently maintaining a small freelance practice and working as a Senior Designer at maude

       I’m a graphic designer and art director based in Brooklyn, NY. I have extensive experience building branded web experiences as well as developing physical product. I also have a love for intuitive design and experimentation. 

       My designs have been exhibited across the world, recognized by the Society of Typographic Arts (Chicago), and featured at the Chicago Architecural Biennial. I studied at Depaul University in Chicago, IL.

     My work is medium agnostic, and informed by authentic collaborations between brand owners and product development teams. I strive to create contemplative and beautifuly simple moments.
