I was raised in Ohio but I have been out of my hometown for longer than I ever lived in it and I am "New York" official - I have multiple career paths and adventures to prove it.
My journey began as the go-to "drawer" in my first grade class. Many years and drawings of Disney characters later, I attended the Maryland Institute College of Art where I received my BFA in Fiber. A market crash and a BFA combined to gift me with a "make it work" approach to life.
A 6-year detour into the world of high-end NYC real estate gave me some sales chops, an appearance on Million Dollar Listing and some great celebrity tea. Most importantly, it reminded me what I loved and needed to do most - make things.
In my free time, I illustrate vinyl album covers, make hats and and sew costumes you may or may not have seen at House of Yes.
My most recent outside of adland success was having one of my horned crowns used in a Smashing Pumpkins music video...yes...THOSE Smashing Pumpkins...check them out below!
