About

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Advertising Design, Illustration and Student Loan Repayment.

As a student I was honored by the American Advertising Federation with the Stickell Scholarship and awarded, along with my team, with a Best in Show Addy for work in the National Student Advertising Competition.

My career started at Grow, a non-traditional marketing and pr shop in San Francisco. There I designed for a myriad of clients including Jamba Juice, Pepsi North America, Dockers and Salon Selectives.

After my stint in northern California, my wandering soul and love of constant chaos in life landed me in Washington, DC at the Y & R agency, RTCRM where I worked as an associate art director on the Time Warner Cable account. Then i decided to make the jump to the Big Apple and haven't looked back since. I'm making the not so big bucks as an art director with the Novartis Vaccines team and honorary agency cupcake creator (feel free to ask about my latest spaghetti and meatballs concoctions).

In my very limited and often forfeited spare time I enjoy online bargain hunting and procrastinating doing my sink full of dirty dishes.
