Research led graphic designer based in New York. Practiced versatile projects in the field of visual communication. From the execution of concept-driven, commissioned projects to self-initiated studies.
While I enjoy being curious, meticulously detailed, playful and an intuition-driven designer, I'm drawn to design that's led by content and not designers; a design that has Relevant longevity and purpose.

Walking Gardens

Gardens are rooted to the ground. Unlike humans, who are constantly
on the move, gardens will never know another place other than the place
of their birth.  Gardens should be freed. They should move.
They should see new places. They should interact with different people.
This is an experiment. Using ready-made HEXABUGS, I attached to their
back surface a small bed with real, natural elements.  I took it out into the
wild -- the streets of New York -- and waited to see people’s reactions.
