My path to becoming a designer was not linear. As an undergraduate, I studied fine arts (intaglio printmaking) with a minor in economics. After graduation I contemplated entering a management training program with a Wall Street investment firm. Coming to my senses, I took just enough design classes to get a job as a receptionist/jr designer at a NY design studio. After two more years of evening design classes, I entered the MFA program in graphic design at Yale. 
In the years following, I have designed for a major magazine, a department store, an architecture firm, non-profits, a very large coffee company, a startup cannabis company and a pizza company. I continue to be passionate about building brands and, of course, all things visual, spacial and tactile.
