New York, NY, USA
I love developing imaginative, elegant graphic design for print and online media.

I love strong typography, sharp layouts and the flawless marriage of design and subject.

For the past 4 years, I’ve done graphic design and creative development for print and web in the Fashion, Art, and Publishing markets.

If I seem like a good fit for your project or company, email me at If you have the time, please check out my Tumblr and Pintrest to get a good idea of my design influences and inspirations.
