Technically, I’ve been a designer for half my life. I Just didn’t realize it until much later. I grew up in small-town Massachusetts and got my start creating graphics and websites for my terrible high school bands. If you were in a local band and you wanted to play shows, you needed a logo. You needed a website. You needed cover art for your demo. Someone had to create this stuff, and in my instance, that someone was me.
I studied design and marketing at college in Connecticut. Then I moved to NYC after graduation. This May, it’ll be seven years since I moved here. I’ve worked at several different places including Complex, Fueled By Ramen, Atlantic Records, CMJ, The Syndicate, and Music For America.
I’ve freelanced for clients big and small, and I still create the art for my own music projects.
