Graduating from the School of Visual Arts in 2004 my thesis, 'the Proactive Project,' bled the line between design, authorship, media, and public space. This unusual body of work brought me through some of New York's most renown design studios including: James Victore Inc., the Valentine Group, and the Pushpin Group, Inc.

I’ve shaped the visual narratives of creative partners that include the FEED Projects, along side Lauren Bush. Branded and helped launch the the White House Organic Farm Project, where Michelle Obama and team planted the US’s ‘first’ organic garden. I helped reinvigorate the American Lung Association by creating their newest cause campaign, Lung Force, and branded the favorite local West Village coffee spot of NYU radicals, Third Rail Coffee
