Art director and product designer, living in New York City. I was raised upstate, studied in Italy and recently spent five years working in Australia. I’m a traveler, a thinker, a problem solver, a dog lover, a long distance runner, a spirited red head... amongst other things.
Currently, a Senior Art director at Publicis Sapient in Manhattan, where I brainstorm and shepherd crafted design initiatives for some of our biggest and most respected clients. Before, I worked for Huge and Elephant in Brooklyn focusing on product design and campaign work. I worked with some of Australia's leading brands at CHE Proximity and smaller businesses in the worlds of art, food, and design at Flint Interactive.
I believe a brand needs to be in a constant but relevant conversation. This is why I design experiences as platforms, not uniforms. Platforms allow brands to stretch out, go places where they otherwise wouldn’t be going. In collaboration with writers, producers, and UX teams, I focus on ideas that are flexible and are strategically led by user principles and insights. I design to simplify the complicated—push for interactivity and new techniques. I bring passion to everything I create and believe that a projects' success is dependent on a collaborative team approach.
