About Me

New York to Seattle

After 7 years at a boutique branding and advertising agency, Love & War, in New York, I am embarking on my own journey west. Over the years I have been a web/print designer, developer, photographer, DP, IT specialist, project manager, art director, and production director. Surrounded by a great team of designers and directors, we enthusiastically tackled bigger and better projects every year.

More detailed case studies are in the works. In the meantime, here are some clients I have worked with in the past:


Love & War

New York, NY
(2007 – 2013)

Love & War is a full service branding and advertising agency with a progressive focus on hospitality, entertainment and technology.

I joined the partners of Love & War in 2007, months after the company was established, and served many roles over the years. Within 7 years of experience I progressed from designer to production director making stops as a photographer, DP, IT specialist, UX/UI designer, and account manager along the way. I managed teams of developers and designers to deliver impactful creative to clients ranging from new burger chains to landmark New York restaurants, from boutique cable companies to addictive reality TV, from luxury residences to high-end cocktail lounges, from celebrity chefs to up-and-coming liquor brands.
