Brand Design + Creative Direction + Design Operations
I am a Motion Design Director, Creative Director, and Brand Shepherd, and served as Comedy Central's Vice President of Brand Design from 2012-2020.
As VP and Design Director, I built and led an award-winning team of motion and digital designers, supporting 360° marketing campaigns, programming stunts, sponsor integrations, tent-pole events, show opens, and digital content, as well as the branding and navigation systems across every channel, app, platform, screen, and fan experience. From SnapChat content to digital billboard wraps in Times Square, to branded content across AppleTV, Amazon Prime, YouTube, PlutoTV, and SiriusXM, my team ensured the craft and brand integrity across every medium.
Working with Brand Creative, Marketing, and Production teams, we earned well over 50 Promax Design and Marketing Awards, as well as Clio Awards for Entertainment Marketing, and the prestigious 2018 Cannes Lions Grand Prix Award.
Support for a global brand never stops, so I also worked with CC's in-house execs and external partners to continuously develop and improve Comedy Central's brand identity, work that can best be seen in the recent collaboration with LoyalKaspar for Comedy Central's 2018-2019 Brand Refresh.
City Green, Inc. is a 501(c)3 urban farming and gardening organization, based in Clifton, New Jersey working to revitalize urban areas through agriculture and educational programming. It offers practical, technical and financial resources in support of environmental stewardship, equitable access to healthy food, and ecologically sustainable communities.
Work + Life Balance
Aside from my love of design, motion graphics and design operations, I am also passionate about sustainability, community service, and spending time outdoors. That is why I am a proud supporter of City Green, and have been a Board Member since 2006, serving as the Board's Vice President since 2017.
City Green, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit, was established in 2004, and is dedicated to improving our post-industrial landscape through community and school gardens, organic and sustainable urban farming, food access to our underserved communities, and providing environmental education – all while promoting environmental and social justice.

When I am not pixel-pushing or nerding-out on art, science, politics, or the potential of City Green, I am usually outside, in the garden, going on hikes, bike rides, or walkabouts with my camera. Below are a few things that caught my eye – take a look, or follow along on Instagram.
