I'm currently based in London, UK.
I work with clients in Europe, the Middle East,
Asia and the United States, where I was born.
The dot com era
I arrived in NY in the late 90's during the dot com era and took my first job with then startup Barnes and Noble.com.
During that time in New York, I was fortunate enough to train with some of the most influential graphic designers of the era: Tibor Kalman and Milton Glaser.
I learned much from these master communicators but Tibor, a disrupter by nature, was the first to open my eyes to the power of design to spread ideas and influence behavior on a large scale.
Back to print
I moved to Italy 2003 after being offered a job in a boutique design atelier in Bologna.
I designed for industries synonymous with Italy: fashion, food and lifestyle and I quickly developed an eye for elegance as only the Italians do it.
Limited edition printed pieces were the pieces I created for clients such as Gianfranco Ferré and San Pellegrino waters. Thanks to generous budgets we selected from hundreds of types of papers, inks, and finishes to create unique, highly crafted work.
Lessons in sustainability
I moved to London in 2008 to realize that the UK is one step ahead in its approach to sustainability and business.
At that time I saw the potential for profit, prosperity and wellbeing increase as businesses considered their impact on the local and global communities and environments in which they operate.
It is always my aim to work with like-minded people across sectors and disciplines who envision a world that is prosperous, healthy and fully alive.
Japan + beyond
It's been important for me to step back from work now and again to observe what's happening in the world around me and respond. In 1999-2000 I travelled to Japan to teach English with the JET program. In between classes I would stop, pause and think. Observations were recorded and understandings expressed in the form of photography.
I continue to explore ideas and concepts through personal art projects and writing.
