I am a Design Director and creative leader who brings a range of design experience and background to every project and team I lead. My work ranges from start-up branding projects to ongoing marketing creative and design direction. I lead the efforts on brand and content design at Blockdaemon. My interests in the world of design spans from architecture to typography, including furniture, urban, and product design. My design process is based on an interest in 'context' and rooted in a desire to understand things. For me, design is a means of solving problems.
My explorations in the design world also include furniture design, user-interface, and web design, as well as graphic arts, wayfinding, and urban design. I find that my interests in the design profession are mostly targeted at solving problems - whether they are aesthetic issues of form, scale, and material, or hiccups in the design and production process. I believe that design can be the solution to problems at all scales.
I've had the privilege of being involved with higher-education while practicing. I have been a visiting design critic at various architecture schools including Pratt Institute, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, Temple, New York Institute of Technology and Syracuse University.
I studied architecture at Syracuse University where I received a Bachelor of Architecture in 2013. Upon graduation, I was awarded the Luther Gifford Prize, an annual award for highest rank in architectural scholarship. My thesis, Simultaneous Cities was awarded a Dean's Citation for Excellence in Thesis Design.
