About Me

Started as a fine artist with cereal boxes and toilet paper roll inventions as a child and through the school of Bob Ross and mum, I leaned in to oil painting. Landscapes, portraits, and fantasy were the favored subject matter. Then my dad told me about a new program "Graphic Design" that I should look into.


My design career started with magazines at a dotcom publisher and led me into a brief stint in the pharmaceutical space. Then I set off to travel the world to find myself, and when I came back, I started my career in recruitment for creatives and marketers within the Westchester, Fairfield, Bergen and NYC metro area. A way to help other creatives have a voice, help get them to the next level of their career, and give back to the creative community in a different capacity.


I freelance every now and again and act as the VP of Creative Recruitment at a boutique search firm in Westchester.


Now when I can get time to scratch out a few sketches and doodles in pencil or pen and ink, I am happy. Setting up an easel, a little harder to do these days, but I am inspired by the talent I meet every day.
