My interest is the marriage between design, new technology, and finding ways to make beautiful, useful and seamless experiences.

My background is Interaction, User Experience and Art Direction.  

I design experiences and mentor teams in design, code, and interaction design. I am currently the Design Lead new experiences for

Previous experiences have been as a User Interface / User Experience Designer for the Weill Cornell Medical College / NewYork Presbyterian Hospital.

I also lecture Design and Multimedia classes. My latest one is Intro. to Interaction Design at FIT in New York City.

My design career didn't only begin at school, where I understood that internships are primordial to a successful career transition after graduation, my first design and web experience was an internship as a Multimedia Artist at Ethan Allen Headquarters - where I remained employed one year after graduating with a BA in Graphic Design.

After Ethan Allen, I put my foot in the door as a Jr. Art Director, at one the most popular Marketing Agencies in Connecticut - Marketing Drive US -  where I quickly grew to a Senior Art Director for the Gillette, Duracell and Braun campaign.

Since that time, I have also been a Marketing and Public Relations / Lead Designer for the Housatonic Area Regional Transit Agency in Western Connecticut. Where I created, promoted and maintained the agency’s brand, in addition to enhancing the transit’s way-finding and scheduling didactics. While in this post, I also became involved in the community by joining public meetings, as a Board Member of local organizations, and collaborating with civic organizations, including becoming an "Official Translator" for the City of Danbury.

A decision to push my design career further into to the latest technology, led me to make a aggressive career move. I was accepted to the Masters Program in Interactive Telecommunications (known as ITP) in New York.  Presently one of the world’s most progressive, competitive and esteemed new media programs, according to this CNET review. And while studying full time, I continued to add to my client list with names such as The Parenting / Prevention Magazine and The New York Stock Exchange among others, as well as received invitations to lecture Design, New Media and Technology classes at my former alma mater, Western Connecticut, in Westchester and currently in New York City at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

If you would like to hear how I can help you with Design, User Experience, Art Direction, Photography, or Information Architecture, send me a message. I'd love to hear from you.
