Experience

With nearly 20 years experience as an independent designer centered in New York City, I have been able to diversify my unique skills among such companies as Bergdorf Goodman, Tiffany & Co., COACH, Reed Krakoff, Barneys New York (& international), Tibi, Pamplemousse Design, Pantone, Kohn Architecture and AKRIS (US & international) to name a few. My role as an independent designer has ranged from consulting on concepts and designs to fabrication and presentation. I have maintained a private design studio in addition to working with these companies on site. Recently my work has branched out in to designing interior architecture, handmade wall coverings and wall treatments, as well as displays for boutiques and exhibition art spaces. As assistant production manager, Visual Department at Bergdorf Goodman (1999, 2000), the position I held required me to be directly involved with multiple window changes on a weekly basis. Also, the yearlong process of developing the holiday window displays on 5th Ave., 57th St. and 58th St. in New York City. Within the studio I was responsible for the day-to-day production of graphics, props and backdrops for window displays and store interiors. I oversaw and hired freelancers who worked on simultaneous projects I managed. In addition to in house production I was an artistic liaison on behalf of Bergdorf Goodman to fashion designers, industrial designers, prop houses, magazines and museums. In addition to my commercial design experience, I simultaneously maintain an art practice. My 2D & 3D art work has been shown by galleries and museums. I have been represented by numerous galleries in New York City and London. My work is in the collections of numerous public and private collections.
