Past Work: Web & Branding

Prior to working at Backstage I worked as a freelancer, designing websites, logos, and other various apps and branding items.

About Me

I like things that look nice. I appreciate a well-designed lamp, enjoy artwork on my walls, and preferred Rdio to Spotify mostly because the interface was better.

Originally from Connecticut, I attended Keene State College in New Hampshire and graduated with a BA in Graphic Design in 2005. My career as a designer really began after moving to New York City a year later. Since that time I’ve worked in a variety of areas in the design industry, including print, advertising, illustration and web. In 2013 I began my foray into digital product design and am currently the Lead Product Designer at Backstage.

Aside from design, I enjoy biking, camping, strong coffee and hoppy beer. I am actually a pretty good cook. I have two cats but do not like them very much. I currently live in the lovely maritime neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn.
