Coming from generations of immigrants from Syria, Panama, Poland, Russia, and Costa Rica, I'm invested in examining culture and exploring history in my design, illustration, and narrative work. I combine elements of the handmade or analog with the digital, bringing old world and new world subjects and tools together. Originally from Miami, Florida, I received my BFA in Communication Design and Art History at Washington University in St. Louis and my MFA in Visual Narrative at School of Visual Arts.
I am currently an art director at mindbodygreen, based in Brooklyn and occasionally available for freelance projects. If you’d like to start a mail exchange or contact me for illustration inquiries, please email me at email@example.com.
