I am a multidisciplinary digital Design Director based in New York. 

I'm a New York native. I have over a decade of experience in creating website design, UX, email, product design, and digital identity systems. I have worked with brands spanning many industries including pets, fashion, farming, CPG, and skincare.

In my role as a Design Director at Barrel, I lead and grow our talented team of designers, collaborate closely with the business development team to secure new opportunities, and streamline processes to enhance our efficiency. For the last 6+ years, I have been running our internship program, including overseeing the recruitment and mentorship of emerging design talent.

I also lead our internal research initiative, DTC Patterns, where our team conducts in-depth analyses by purchasing ecommerce products and documenting our experiences. This has been a resource for our industry, internal team, and clients.

I am an active member of the DID (Diversity in Design) Network since it was founded in 2020, and am dedicated to making the design community a more accessible and inclusive environment. As of 2024, I became a DID mentor and work closely with younger designers to help provide guidance on their career path. Accessibility is something I am very passionate about and advocate for whenever mentoring designers or designing myself.

When I am not at work you can find me hiking in the Hudson Valley, traveling, or shooting film.
