Product Designer

Ridgewood, NJ, USA
Designer with a passion for everything creative. I’m currently a product designer at Ferguson Enterprises but I also love photography, visual art, graphic design, illustrating and cartooning as well. In my spare time, I run a music & movie website that I started in 1997. The site features news, reviews, satirical articles and a podcast.
