After graduating with honors from Pratt Institute in 1983, I began working freelance as an illustrator and a graphic artist. My illustrations and cartoons has been published by the likes of The National Audubon Society, Viacom, Penthouse, Public Citizen, Richard Simmons and Friends, Governing, ubmfuturecities.com,The CBA Record, Basement Systems, Utah Business, Contract, Millimeter, myCULTURE, Bank Systems and Equipment, National Jeweler, Total Strategic Marketing, Inside Software, Meeting News, Software Maintenance News, Ophthalmology Management, Americana, The Humanist, and The Executive Female amongst others.
I specialize in humorous illustrations for publications, branding, websites, packaging and marketing. I was the Art Director of the Special Marketing Division of Hachette Filipacchi Media for over 19 years. During my tenure at Hachette I worked on titles such as Elle, Elle Decor, Met Home, Woman’s Day, Car and Driver, Road & Track, Boating, and Sound and Vision. This work gave me special insight working visually with branding and identities.
During the same time period I worked at Hachette I also instructed classes one day a week, over a span of four years, at the Parsons School of Design in Greenwich Village, New York City.
