As recent MFA graduate from The School of Visual Arts, I have gained a life changing experience by living in NYC for two years and 7000 miles away from familiar culture, language, and pace. Studying under extraordinary designers, such as Steve Heller and Milton Glaser and being a teaching assistant for Stefan Sagmeister, these placements have enabled me to develop not only specific design skills, but also a valuable and transferable skill set that prepared me for this fast-paced and challenging city.
