I was born in Washington D.C. and lived in Europe and the United States. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Graphic Design, I headed to New York to create work for clients including CBS, Revlon, Avon, Gucci, and CBS International. I relocated to Miami to produce creative for CBS International and Columbia Records. In Miami, my focus extended to new media and video development. I was lucky to work and learn from international producers and to win a Telly Award.
