My artistic prowess combined with my experience improving conceptual clarity and visual refinement across brand identity, enables me to constantly be crafting new ways to bring excitement and value to a brand.
Recently, I worked as the first creative director at Atria Book Publishing (a division of Simon & Schuster, Inc.) where I was hired to provide a unified creative vision for the 15 year old brand and its 10 imprints.
Before Atria, I led creative development and design of branded assets for selective clients ranging in fashion, art and retail. I also consulted at Lehmann Maupin where I helped initiate artists and brand collaborations.
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 foundation, I learned photography, graphic design and video. My rich vocabulary in art history, sharp eye for detail, and design cohesion brings a unique perspective to my work.
