your classic art school dropout.tm


i’m an art director based in new york city.

i’m currently working primarily on the AT&T and Shea Moisture accounts at bbdo worldwide in ny. i’ve worked previously at fcb new york on the Lincoln Financial account, and have also worked on brands such as iRobot, TAZO Tea, Unilever (Right to Shower, Dove), xfinity mobile, HBO, and others at edelman. my side-passion is cause-marketing, specifically creating for smaller charities and foundations, and i’ve done so on multiple occasions. 

i attended pratt institute for two and a half years, refining my fine arts but also concentrating on advertising.

i still explore the fine arts [link], and have interest in combining digital and social design with the more tangible mixed-media aspects that the arts allow.

as you can see from my site, i love the metamodernist aesthetic currently sweeping through the arts and i enjoy applying those same visual concepts to digital spaces.

i like to dress. and when i say dress i mean dress. i like to bake i like to cook i like kitsh and i like aesthetics. 

if you put me in front of a camera i’ll still be directing the shoot:
