I was born and raised in Western New York in a small town called Silver Creek. During high school is when I discovered Photoshop and pretty much fell in love with design. I began at RIT in September 2006 and can't imagine having gone anywhere else. I am looking to work with creative professionals in a fast paced design or marketing firm on branding and integrated marketing campaigns. I am currently living in New York City working as an Art Director at MME: Manhattan Marketing Ensemble.
When it comes to design, I love using colors, textures and imagery as a cohesive unit to reflect certain emotions or or convey messages. I believe design should make the viewer feel something, whether it's happiness, sadness, anger, nostalgia, any emotion in the world. That is when design is most effective: when it warrants a response so clear and intense. I believe brands should focus on making their target audience feel something and inspire them to take action, buy their product, or donate. Brands need to present their message to the right audience through the right media outlets. This is what I do best, and this is what I can do for your brand.
