IN THE BEGINNING...
As a child I enjoyed making, making anything, ranging from Lego boats, mini golf courses and walk through haunted houses in my basement to shoelace pulley systems rigged to open and close bedroom doors and illuminated ping pong paddles.
Since graduating in 2003 with a BA in Visual Communications, I have had the opportunity to develop my design and professional approach while working in several design studios. I have experience in logo and packaging design, as well as corporate identity web and print design. I've also had the opportunity to integrate both 2D and 3D design as a Lead Experiential Designer, illustrating and designing mobile marketing and interactive user experiences, shaping national branding campaigns for companies like McDonald's, Keurig, Dunkin Donuts and PUMA.
In October of 2013 I earned a MFA in Graphic Design from the Vermont College of Fine Arts with a focus on the personal development of a design process. I based my work on communicating through participatory design.
Currently, I am Director of Product Design at Major League Baseball Advanced Media, collaborating with product managers, developers and designers to define UI and UX, visual language and product requirements for MLB.com mobile products.
