I have been creating original graphics since I bought my first computer as a student. What began as a hobby has developed into an advanced skill set that has allowed me turn my passion into a profession. Over the past few years I have been collaborating with companies like Fashion Snoops and MTI, among others, to create original artwork and textile designs. One of my most recent projects is conceptualizing and designing a high-end silk scarf collection for fine jewelry designer Bergio – which has been finalized and is ready to go into production. In addition to developing the designs, I have also been project managing the process, including sourcing and vetting outside vendors / strategic partners. I also have deep experience in graphic design, spanning traditional print, digital, and apparel. I’m currently working as a freelance graphic designer on print collateral and photo retouching projects for various clients, specifically in the jewelry industry. My last full time position was at EATALY NYC, where I was responsible for designing and producing all internal communications for the retail environment. Most projects were extremely time-sensitive, and included large-scale and directional signage, menus, flyers, posters, brochures and website templates and updates. I also did retouching of product and event images, and oversaw various vendors for production and installation.
