I am a multi-disciplined designer, illustrator, creative problem solver and visual storyteller specializing in art direction, brand development, digital media design, and illustration. My design sensibilities are heavily inspired by traditional print design, a deep love for communication, typography, and the Bauhaus fundamentals of sharing and collaboration. I believe strongly in learning from and working with others and continuing to grow both creatively and professionally, which helps to make me a better designer.
I have been designing and executing creative solutions in collaborative and autonomous roles through traditional print, illustration, publication, digital media platforms, web and email advertisements, social media, live event, broadcast, packaging, and indoor and outdoor large-scale graphics. I am very proud of the work that I have been able to complete with my teams while working with multiple clients and people from various disciplines and backgrounds.
Throughout my career, I have worked as an in-house designer and art director for two National Hockey League teams (the Columbus Blue Jackets and the New Jersey Devils) as well as the National Hockey League. I also have time on the agency side working as the Senior Designer at Malka Media, a digital design agency. In this time, I have been fortunate to have my work featured on ESPN, VICE, Yahoo! Sports (1, 2), Sportsnet (1, 2), and TSN.
I earned a B.S. in Design from The Ohio State University, majoring in Visual Communication Design and Interior Design. Currently, I am located in New York City
