Hi!



I’m a creative director and designer who specializes in helping brands create compelling visuals through strategic thinking, art direction, and design, regardless of medium.

As the creative director for BuzzFeed News, I built an award-winning art department that defines the visual standards for the site and a dozen of the brand’s streaming TV shows, like Follow This on Netflix. I have also been fortunate enough to work for publications like Entertainment Weekly, Cooking Light, Smash, Tennis, and Cincinnati Magazines.  

My work with these brands has been recognized through two Emmy nominations and over 65 industry awards from the Society of Publication Designers, American Illustration, and American Photography.  

I’m based in Brooklyn, New York and available remotely.
