I am a designer from Northern Virginia, whose practice was shaped during studies in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and in Baltimore, USA.
I learned design in the international and multidisciplinary environment of New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE, and I hold an MFA in Graphic Design from Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). My international experience makes me passionate about the cross-cultural possibilities of great design and thoughtful branding.
Because of my background in both visual art and cognitive science, I focus on research as the foundation of my practice to create design solutions that are both beautiful and effective.
I am currently working as an Instructor of Visual Design at New York University Abu Dhabi.
