I discovered a passion in studio arts during high school, focusing mainly on sculpture and printing. Following high school, I attended Dutchess Community College as a Conklin Scholar studying Commercial Art. During this time I began to explore the digital arts, initiating my study of graphic design, illustration, and typography. Upon graduating Dutchess I immediately transferred to Marist College studying Digital Media abroad at the Marist-Lorenzo de’Medici campus in Florence, Italy.
I spent the last four semesters of my junior and senior year abroad and through a wide range of experiences living among a second culture; I was able to grow in a diversified academia. I continued to study graphic design while also delving into web and blog design, digital photography, and motion graphics. Living abroad had also initiated an intensive study of the Italian language, culture, and art. In addition to my studies, I worked abroad as a Graphic Design Assistant at Tetriz, the printing center for students and faculty at the Lorenzo de’Medici Institute. Currently, I work for the in-house marketing team of a New York City residential real estate firm. I am also available for freelance work.
