I am a native Brooklynite, a complete ham, and a rebel with a cause. I graduated from Pratt Institute in 2008 with a B.F.A. in Communications Design and a focus in Graphic Design. I’ve spent the past nine years working for agencies, and in media and publishing designing, copywriting, producing audio, and editing video. While traveling down many different artistic avenues, I’ve learned to trust my instincts, be present with my passions, and absorb new information every day. I believe the best way to marry happiness and financial success is through being open, creative, and conscious. Getting off the ol’ tush and taking action helps too! I’ve noticed that a willingness to be vulnerable allows serendipity to occur, which leads to personal growth. Some of my heroes are Studs Terkel, Bruce Springsteen, and “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
