Perpetually not Pumpkin Spice Latte enough for Connecticut and not Cronut enough for New York City. In May of 2014, I graduated with honors from Pratt Institute with a Bachelor's of Industrial Design. I have also studied at Rhode Island School of Design in their intensive Summer Institute of Graphic Design Studies.
Professionally, I have carried a 20lb box of whoopee cushions through Times Square to deliver on set at Nickelodeon, spent 12 hours gluing rhinestones on a larger-than-life chrome boombox for Barneys New York holiday windows, and calmly smiled at celebrities at Frieze Art Fair while scanning their tickets. I have taught adolescents to use Adobe Illustrator, encouraged them to make thoughtful decisions, and coached them through their bouts of teen angst. I feel very lucky to be paid for meaningful and creative work.
I am always open to learning new skills and trying something different.
My most treasured skill is my fine-tuned ability to determine which member of *NSYNC is singing at any given point in all of their songs. My other hidden talents include befriending dogs at parties, predicting couples before they become "Facebook Official," and applying liquid eyeliner evenly.
Those who know me often call me "Walnut."
