I am an east coaster originally from Connecticut and graduated from The New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk University in Boston, MA. After receiving my BFA, I remained in Boston and designed marketing material, branding, and magazines. (And became a huge Red Sox fan). Then, it was time to shake things up. I headed west and drove out to Los Angeles, where I worked for a fashion trend forecasting company and designed their monthly magazines. After a few months I parted ways with the fashion company and hopped on the entertainment band wagon to work for Mantra Films, where I designed DVD covers, logos, and web pages. From there, I worked at TOMS Shoes as a studio artist performing production design, photo retouching, designing in-store signage, landing pages, e-blasts, and web banners. I then worked at Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. and designed their marketing material, packaging, web banners, coupons, and in-store promotions before designing at Lorna Jane, a fashion fitness company. At Lorna Jane, I designed daily emails including wholesale emails, along with website design, invites, banners, in-store designs, and social media content. Today, I am a freelance graphic designer working with numerous clients from China to New York to Los Angeles.
In addition to design, I run and edit a lifestyle blog in Los Angeles called hoopLA which has led me to perform freelance social media and write for other outlets including EaterLA and CBS LA.
