A little about me

I am a freelance designer & art director based in Rochester, NY. Previously I worked as a designer and art director in New York City and Boston.
I design a wide range of promotional materials, including seasonal catalogs, ads, sale kits posters, and websites... from conception to completion.
I have enjoyed working with clients in many locations, from New York to Budapest.
See examples of my design work: Logos, Web, Print.

From 2014-2016 I was also a Youth Minister at two Catholic churches in Brighton, NY. I successfully revitalized the program, resulting in a 214% increase in participation. Implemented a comprehensive model of Youth Ministry for over 100 youth in grades 6 through 12, including faith formation, team building, development of leadership skills, service projects and community outreach. Also worked to develop new partnerships with those of other faiths, particularly the Islamic and Jewish communities.

    I volunteer much of my free time for organizations I believe in, often in youth sports. I am a coach and Vice President of the Executive Board of the RiverFlow Soccer Club of Rochester, NY. RiverFlow is a community of volunteers dedicated to using soccer as a vehicle for positive change in the City of Rochester, NY and neighboring communities. We are actively involved in bridging racial, cultural, and socio-economic divides.
    I also was a founding member, coach and long time President of the Brighton Junior Barons.
    Donating my time and talents to help others is something I strongly believe in and enjoy doing!
