I’m passionate about the power of visual storytelling, human-centered design, and bringing art into commercial design.
I'm currently working as the Senior Communication Designer in the marketing and communications office at The New School where I'm responsible for leading the design + concept development for various advertising and creative communication initiatives. I specialize in OOH, social, print, digital, and animation. I’m always eager to learn, experiment, and take on new challenges!
My artwork is inspired by New York City’s constant evolution, collective memory and ultimate essence. My paintings feature architectural structures and transcendental spaces in an urban landscape suffused with color and illumination. The compositions do not include people and lack any reference to gender, race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. This allows the viewer to experience my paintings from his or her unique perspective while opening up the dialogue to a range of diverse possibilities.
My recent series, "Industrial Evolution", depicts old factories and industrial spaces that have been transformed into something else (start-ups, art spaces, etc). Each painting smashes planes, color, and light together to compress time into one flat surface. My artwork is designed to capture the moment and become a dual representation of our internal states and external experiences. Our perception and memory change as the space around us changes. My reconstruction of the city paints a visual soundtrack for the intangible experience of its dynamic space.
