Creative, skilled and highly experienced Art Director proficient in editorial, UI and data visualizations. In addition to being a hardworking designer who builds powerful and elegant visual content, I excel in collaborating and developing trustful partnerships. Key accomplishments include developing comprehensive digital media kits for a portfolio of over 35 business brands at Nielsen Business Media; design directing the new visual identity for Business Travel News and Travel Procurement publications; designing and executing the visual style for Scholastic's student analytics programs and flagship math program; and developing interactive companion websites for Oxford University Press' academic titles. I am currently working on UX Design projects that go beyond creating visuals; with a focus on the research process and user testing to develop a keen understanding of user needs and behaviors, as well as developing content strategies as part of an overall business plan. An avid photographer, I have works published in The New Yorker, Gridskipper.com, Brownstoner.com, Jaunted.com, Philippine Airlines, OUP China, Business Travel News, Successful Meetings, and Prentice Hall-Hong Kong. Let's work together!
