Hello and thank you for your interest in me and my work. I am a versatile art director with over 10 years professional experience. As a designer, I have worked with agencies and creative departments both large and small. My focus has been mainly in the area of digital/interactive media but I enjoy just about any type of design challenge. I am passionate about design and enjoy collaborating with others who share my love of creative work.

My client work comes from a wide and diverse array of types and industries which includes healthcare/pharma, luxury brands, fashion and beauty, consumer products, financial, native advertising, and more.

In addition to my design work, I am a competent front-end coder. I have hand coded countless sites (including this one), built custom Wordpress themes and mobile friendly pages.

I also enjoy an active career as an illustrator and animator. My illustrations have appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times, Washington Post and Nickelodeon Magazine. My animation has appeared on HBO's “Lucky Louie” (2006) and in the 2012 documentary, “Electoral Dysfunction”, which aired on PBS and was screened nationwide.

I am always open to new freelance and long-term projects. Let's work together!
