I am an Integrated Senior Art Director + Designer from NYC, now living and working in London. I have 18+ years at global agencies JWT, Saatchi, FCB, Grey, Havas and Arnold in NYC, London, Seattle and Boston, as well as many smaller ones.
My experience ranges in everything from packaged goods to pro-bono, and retail to healthcare. And I work across channels as varied as broadcast, print, digital (websites, banners, emails, social), shopper/retail, experiential, branding, direct mail, collateral, healthcare, and not-for-profit. Not to mention numerous new business pitches for just about every kind of client or product.
I just finished my MA in Photography from Cass Faculty of Art in London. I received my BS in Mass Communications/Advertising from Boston University. Also studied Fine Art at New York University and Cooper Union.
Have Dual Citizenship (USA and Italy). So I am ready, willing and able to work in London and anywhere else in Europe.
