Los Angeles, CA

I have 16 years of creative design work experience in New York City. After working at Bergman Associates (focusing on fashion and beauty), I was senior designer at The Oliphant Press until 2010, working with foundations and museums. Since then I have been providing creative services to clients such as The Frick Collection, The Songwriters Hall of Fame, Cambridge in America, Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and the Leon Levy Foundation. I bring a sophisticated, clean sense of design to all the projects I produce.
