I’m a designer living and working in Brooklyn NY, and I have a passion for design that delights and solves problems through excellent solutions.

I started my design career studying architecture and earned my professional degree from the Pratt Institute. After graduating I worked as a conceptual architectural designer and visualization specialist for a firm in NYC helping clients translate proposals into beautiful three dimensional digital solutions and marketing tools.
While there I began working with one of the partners to develop a software platform that could better help our clients present the materials we were creating for them across a variety of interactive formats and VR.
This experience led me to discover a career I never knew existed, product design. I found a fantastic set of parallels between designing spaces for people and the work of a product designer in ensuring users can seamlessly and joyfully interact with the tools they need.
