Currently a full-time Graphic Designer creating digitally printed and specialty wallcoverings at Astek, and part-time Freelance Designer in Los Angeles, CA. Previous Marketing Graphic Designer for publicly-traded cannabis brand, Greenlane, Product Development Graphic Designer at luxury home goods brand, The Annie Selke Companies. Also previous Designer for Boston's Parlor Skis, Student Marketing Manager for Vans, and graduate of the College of Fine Arts at Boston University.
I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and raised in the heart of the Berkshires, home to the Clark Art Museum, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), and the Norman Rockwell Museum. I then moved on to be an alumni of Mount Greylock Regional High School in Williamstown, MA, where I was commissioned to paint a mural for our library. Additionally, I entered my paintings in local art competitions, and won awards such as "Best in Show" at the Miller Art Show, and a Gold Medal scholarship for Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) at the MASS MoCa High School Art Show. While I enjoy working in the fine arts in my spare time, my current work consists mostly of graphic design, illustration, print, and marketing.
Presently, I am a Graphic Designer at the design industry's leading provider of digitally printed and specialty wallcoverings, Astek. We create everything from backgrounds and set props for HBO, Netflix, and HGTV, to hand-illustrated patterns and murals for commercial spaces. Previously, I was the Marketing Graphic Designer/Marketing Coordinator at publicly-traded cannabis company, Greenlane Holdings, Inc. in Los Angeles, CA. Before that, I was the Product Development Graphic Designer at The Annie Selke Companies, a high-end home furnishings company located in Pittsfield, MA.
I am also a proud graduate of Boston University's College of Fine Arts Class of 2018 where I earned a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Advertising from the College of Communications. I studied abroad in Venice, Italy, joined the club Alpine Ski Racing Team, as well as took part in my school's only fashion magazine, Off the Cuff.
I currently reside in Los Angeles, CA with my bearded dragon, fondly named Norbert (Harry Potter fans will get this reference), and my two cats, Nala and Binx. In the future I hope to continue exploring my creative talents, travel, learn, and gain knowledge from the thousands of creative minds in Los Angeles.
