As a student at Pratt Institute I began my design career as an intern with the iconic, architect and designer, Michael Graves. After graduating from Pratt I was hired as a full-time graphic designer at Michael Graves and worked under Donald Strum, the Principal of Product Design. As a designer at MG I created branding and packaging for the revolutionary Michael Graves / Drive Medical partnership, packaging for Michael Graves branded Target products, branding for Chef Charlie Trotter’s concept restaurant SEA, and the global rebrand of Wyndham Hotels.

In 2008, I was accepted into the Rutgers University MFA program and was awarded a teaching fellowship and full scholarship. My research and work focused on the complexities of racism, segregation, and our inclination as human beings to want to divide, separate, label, and control one another. His performance TOW addressed some of these issues and was performed at White Box in NYC.

In addition to teaching, I have an active freelance practice and I have worked with the Speyer Legacy School in Manhattan, Sheldon Wiley - the World’s Fastest Bartender, and Foundation - an underground house party in NYC hosted by Vivacious from Ru Paul’s Drag Race. I’m currently working on album artwork for Uncall, a rising Ukranian hip-hop artist.
