    Highly Skilled Packaging and Branding Designer

    New York, NY

I’ve been a hands-on designer in the industry for 12 years and possess a breadth of skills and knowledge that are an asset to all my clients. I am a seasoned and highly skilled packaging designer, with superb knowledge of typography, file construction & production practices, photo/art direction, illustration and hand comping. I can bring much insight on brands from a wealth of different industries and have been doing packaging, branding, and illustration on some of the biggest brands to date. As a conscientious individual, I have a strong work ethic and enjoy the collaborative nature of our industry. I’m a self-starter with a take-charge personality, priding myself on efficiency and time management as well as the ability to hash out ideas quickly and execute them proficiently. I am humorous, helpful and most of all dedicated to crafting strategic design solutions that help build worlds and satisfy my clients.
