About Me

profile1
Experienced Art Director with a demonstrated history of working in the retail industry. Strong arts and design professional skilled in Web Design, Graphics, On Set Direction, And Adobe Creative Suite.

I am an experienced graphic and web designer, who has been fortunate enough to work across a variety of mediums and to work with many talented artists through out my career. The opportunity to work across various types of design, as well as, with a wide range of clients, has allowed me to grow as an artist, but to also find the areas that I am most passionate about.

In recent years I have been focusing on digital art and communicating through an commerce platform. As technology advances we are able to learn so much about our consumer and we are able to communicate with them on such a personal level, its truly amazing. I am fascinated by how as a designer it becomes my challenge to utilize all the great information being provided by CRMs, and remarking, and all the other channels, and to repurpose that information to make a meaningful connection with the consumer at every touch point. Its so powerful! In my current position as a Digital Art Director I balance the visual brand with the digital solutions. This means everything from personalized emails, to remarking adds, to banners on the website, and videos to support the brand voice.

THE FUN STUFF: I love the sunshine, and all the actives that happen in its rays! In the summer that means I’m on the beach, out out for a hike, a walk along the river, a cocktail on a deck, or just reading a book in a patch of sun. In the winter, it means I’m patiently waiting (or no so patiently) the return of the warm weather! I love to travel and am always planning my next trip, and I believe any adventure to somewhere new counts as a trip, no passport required. I grew up in CT, and still have family all around the Tri-State Area. I spend most of my summer in at my parents beach house in Brigantine NJ, where my Uncle owns a local restaurant.
