I hold a BA in studio art from SVA and an MA in arts administration with a focus on arts marketing from Columbia University. I can herd cats with the best of them. I have also worked for both a stationer and giclée printer, and been the visual content editor for national and multi-national corporate websites. My experience gives me unique skills to forge connections between the Id of visual communication and the Ego of branding, as well as the tools to guide the collaborative process of creating a unique and effective visual identity.
