About

I received my BA in Graphic Design at Salem State in 2011. After graduating I began my career at Collective Next, a business management consultant, which formed an excellent foundation for my career as I was exposed to a wide-range of industries and their particular branding needs on a regular basis. From there I operated on a freelance basis, working on a variety of design projects for small-scale clients. These jobs included logos, business cards, merchandise, and graphic suites. After freelancing I wanted to make the shift to an in-house position, and after temping at the Boston Society of Architects, I was offered a permanent role. Initially responsible for only web content management, my responsibilities would soon grow to include: graphic design and branding guidelines, email scheduling and delivery, sales support, and large-scale productions (i.e. publications, environmental vinyl, exhibitions).
