I am a creative director and visual artist based in Los Angeles, CA. From multinational brands and agencies, to small businesses and non-profits, my work is driven by beauty, innovation, and the ability to understand and enhance a client's visual identity and communication strategy.
A graduate of the Yale University School of Art, I have shown my artwork nationally and internationally in cities including Mexico City, Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, Zurich and Athens. I was a recipient of a Larry Kramer Initiative Grant for work involving gay and lesbian families, and a DAAD stipendium to produce a body of work in Berlin, Germany. Currently, I am co-directing my first two documentary films: The Long Shadow of Fear, which looks at the long term psychological impact the AIDS crisis and ALL MAN: The International Male Story, a film about the infamous men's clothing catalog and its impact on masculinity in America.
