I am a Brooklyn-based Art Director and Designer.
My dad was a graphic designer. I remember many nights when he had to work late, he would sit me down at an illuminated art table in his office with more colored pencils than I knew to do with. He would take me down to the production floor and show me how to use a printing press. At the state fair he would point out kerning errors in all of the signs. Art and design has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.
I don't take it for granted that I get to create things everyday. I am constantly inspired by all of the talented people around me. I simply love doing great work with great people. And the work only gets better and more fun when you surround yourself with the right people.
I am passionate about the work that is being done in my community. I have made it a priority to help as much as possible by taking photos, making posters, banners, branding and t-shirts. I am inspired by artists like JR, Favianna Rodriguez, The Yes Men and Justseeds who use design to shed light on people and communities to lift them up. I can't imagine being a designer and not using my skill for this kind of work.
