This currency design incorporates paintings of the American Revolution by Don Troiani to embody what the United States stands for. The images include the battles of Lexington & Concord and Princeton and the winter at Valley Forge, arguably three of the most crucial points of the war. The modern text is juxtaposed with the historic images to communicate that the history of the American Revolution is still relevant to the United States Today. I incorporate my passion for history in my work whenever I can.

Logo for a hypothetical museum on George Washington, one of my favorite historical figures. More work coming soon.
History Club Posters
A series of posters designed for the RIT History Club that I founded in 2015. I wanted to create a series of posters that would catch people's eyes among the hundreds of posters on the walls of the student union at RIT. I chose bold, modern text and portraits full of color and mystery of lesser known historical figures. They are meant to intrigue the viewer and leave them wanting to know more about the subjects.
Type as Image
This piece uses letterforms to create a dynamic image of a rhythmic gymnast. I combined organic forms to express her body and leotard and imply her graceful movement.
This infographic was designed with the data from the Gallup World Poll Report, Most NATO Members in Eastern Europe See It as Protection (February 10, 2017), by Michael Smith. While the article presents poll data that address a number of different questions, I focused on just one element of the article, summarizing it into a simpler and more accessible format.

This project was a part of a two day user experience conference run by Liz Wells of StinkStudios. Our task was to come up with an interactive experience at The University of Rochester's Memorial Art Gallery.
Through user interviews, we identified issues with the museum. I decided to make an app that would provide more information about the art at the museum. However, I realized that most people would prefer to use google instead of going through the process of downloading an app. I thought about what is inconvenient about googling, and the first thing that came to mind is the irritation of typing up long titles and artists’ names. There is often no time to search all these pieces of art while at the museum and many people resort to taking photos with the intention of going back later and looking up the art. Most people never get around to doing this.
With my app, a visitor simply has to hold the camera up to the artwork and recognition software will bring up the image and information about it, including background on the artist, historical context, and related work. The user can also save their favorites to their collection.
The next day we user tested at the museum and I incorporated the feedback into the app. Most people I tested on said that they found it very intuitive and that they would prefer this over google to learn more about the art at the museum.

This infographic wascreated based on data originally published in the Gallup.com article, Hawaii Leads US States in Well-Being for Record Sixth Time (February 1, 2017), by Dan Witters. After reading and analyzing the article, I took the data that I found most important and represented it visually (instead of the tabular presentation in the article) to make it easier for the reader to understand and digest.
These graphics were designed for The Gallup Organization to invite employees to internal food events.
These are spreads I designed for the Rochester Institute of Technology's Reporter magazine from 2014-2016. My goal was to create dynamic designs that were different from what had been done in the past at Reporter.
