About


About

 

I come from a nontraditional background and unlike others that have made the pilgrimage west, I am a San Francisco native. I graduated from California State University (HSU) with a BFA in Studio Art and Graphic Design. I then joined the CSU International Program where I continued my education at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze. There I was classically trained in fine arts. While my continued studies in Italy were primarily focused on oil painting, drawing, and artistic anatomy, I was also schooled in the fundamentals of design, photography, typography, and color theory.

After graduation and several years of world travel, I returned home to further hone my tactical skills. Web development, mobile product design, responsive methodologies, and user experience design principles have all become second nature. I also gained exposure to the account management side of the business and am fully confident engineering agile project management workflows, overseeing concurrent product launches, planning and coordinating large scale marketing campaigns and developing overarching brand strategies. These collective skills have all become invaluable in my work with Fortune 500 companies and small studios alike.

I am seeking leadership opportunities, but when the role requires I can always get back to my roots. Meaning that I have no problem rolling up my sleeves to tackle projects on my own. At heart, I’m still a top notch designer with great precision and attention to detail.
