Recently, I was the first Creative Director at Atria Publishing where I was hired to refresh the creative vision of the 16 year old brand and its 10 imprints.
Before Atria, I led creative development and design of branded assets for select clients ranging in fashion, art and retail including the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Oprah, Spanx, Flaunt Magazine, and Playboy Magazine. I have recently been asked to direct my first Virtual Reality awareness film with a non profit and I am very excited to explore this new medium.
I was the media/brand consultant at Lehmann Maupin where I helped initiate artists and brand partnerships including Mickalene Thomas and Sephora and Tracey Emin and the Times Square Arts.
My background is in fine art. I attended two classical art ateliers with emphasis on Renaissance and Old Master painting techniques. I hold a BFA in Illustration from the Fashion Institute of Technology, a Studio Art Certificate from Union Square Atelier/National Academy of Design and a Certificate from the Harlem Studio School Atelier.
Expanding on this solid painting foundation, I studied photography, graphic design, video and video editing. My rich vocabulary in art history, sharp eye for detail, and innate design cohesion brings a unique perspective to my work.
Selected Clients : The New York Times, People Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, The Museum of Sex, People Magazine, Lipstick Queen and Soho House, New York and Los Angeles.
