I attended the Portfolio Center in Atlanta after graduating the College of Charleston and built a graphic design/art direction portfolio for 2 years. Then I freelanced for Vanity Fair Magazine as a graphic designer for almost a year before moving to Dallas Texas to work for Neiman Marcus in my first full time art director role.
My creative process is highly conceptual, thoughtful and process driven. An art director is a creative contractor that leads a team to deliver compelling creative. I have the taste level, do the homework and express my ideas to all creative cross functions and encourage them to contribute and elevate the creative. I pride myself on being multi-faceted with experience in directing photography, managing both photo teams as well as graphic design teams, and executing hands on graphic design.
I was born in Worcester Massachusetts then moved to South Carolina when I was 8 years old. I grew up working in my parents' Greek restaurant at a young age and absorbed their entrepreneurial spirit, work ethic and foodiness! I was the artistic free bird in the family and fearlessly followed my passion for art and fashion.
