Although my current home is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I’ve had the pleasure of working with people locally and internationally, including Landor Associates in Hamburg, Germany, and House9 Design, in Montreal, Canada.

As a visual designer, I’m concerned with impacting markets and social groups in a positive way through thoughtful research and cultural perspective. My academic work and educational background reflects my appreciation for perspective. As a student, I studied visual anthropology and German while actively working towards a degree in Graphic Design at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, USA.

My personal interests in the field involve the relationship between people and materials produced for them, exploring object culture through reinterpreting artifacts. I’m drawn to the differences between commercial goods and the meaning embodied in their forms, designing things typically discarded and reimagining those materials when they aren’t.
