I have 20+ years of design and creative direction experience, with a focus on brand development/implementation, print design, web UI/UX, advertising and direct mail marketing.

My diverse interests and creative focus allow me to be problem solver, whether it’s working with an established brand, evolving a brand in transition or the creation of a new brand/identity package.

I consider myself an excellent collaborator and am completely comfortable with clients as well as fellow creatives. My many years of experience allow me to bring a focused yet fresh perspective to any design team or creative environment.

Most recently I was the Associate Vice President / Director of Creative Services for Modell’s Sporting Goods retail chain, where I oversaw all print, advertising (print, web and digital), direct mail, OOH, POP and e-comm for Modell’s in house Marketing Department.

Prior to Modell’s, I freelanced as a CPG graphic designer for the branding firm CBX and a partner in the “small but mighty” 15-year-old Lost In Brooklyn Studio. Before LIB, I was a creative director for the sports marketing firm SME–Power Branding, a senior designer at The National Hockey League, a designer for The Limited Corporation and production designer for The National Football League. Visit my Linkedin profile for more information or download my CV.

Since 2005, I have been an adjunct professor at Parsons–The New School for design teaching communication design, package design, print design and typography design. It’s a blast, trust me!

I graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in communication design and illustration.

. . . And another little known fact, unless you know me, I have over 20 Hawaiian shirts, three tikis and an awesome better half to share them with. Read Less
