After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design I eventually landed in beautiful San Diego. From fine art and commercial photography to consulting and publishing, I’ve been fortunate to wear many hats within the design industry. Today this experience, coupled with my background in education, grants me the opportunity to work with future creators and collaborate on each prospective student’s roadmap to success.
When I’m not downtown at the NewSchool office, you’ll find me outdoors. The Southern California landscape never ceases to move and surprise me – it’s just so different from where I grew up. It’s great to get outside my comfort zone by exploring, hiking, and practicing yoga; I also have a very cute dog named Finnegan who keeps me on my toes.
NewSchool gives me the opportunity to connect with fellow problem-solvers in our dense and diverse neighborhood. Just walking around campus, you can feel the “buzz” of talent and creativity. It’s a good life, to be motivated every single day – and the best is yet to come. Welcome to NewSchool!
