Welcome! Please enjoy this picture of me with some seriously awesome goats.
Getting to work with some of the most talented and interesting people from all over the world probably makes me one of the luckiest people on earth.
Let's see what I can do for you. I'm an art director/graphic designer with a talent for smithing big ideas from concept to execution* and I won’t rest until the client says, “Wow!”
With a background as a painter, writer, and editor (as well as studies in art history, American and French history, cinema studies, and typography) I get a thrill every time I am able to meld my references and skills into arresting visuals for my clients.
I live in Manhattan with my husband and our two staggeringly overweight cats, Jack and Lyndon.
*Ninety percent of the work I've chosen to show in my portfolio are my concepts with no outside art direction. I've created collateral across all forms of media internationally: from menus, postcards and posters in Paris; to floor-clings, enormous banners, and playbills in Dubai; and posters, mugs, T-shirt, CDs, business cards, wallclings, etc. here in New York.
Favorite things: art (Bronzino, Schiele, Basquiat, Kruger), film (Almodovar, Bergman, Truffaut, Yimou, Waters, Linklater, F.F. Coppola), theater (Ibsen, Sondheim, Williams, McDonagh), travel (40+ countries. Favorites: France, India, Netherlands, Thailand, Burma, Uzbekistan) graphic design (the Lustigs, Bass, Filli, Scher, Victore), gin (I recently discovered Irish Gunpowder Gin while in Donegal County, Ireland), being informed (Atlantic magazine, Paris Review, Fast Company, and The New York Times in print).
