For the last two years, I have been the graphic designer for the Binghamton Philharmonic Orchestra. I have created a wide range of collateral materials for them, including; postcards, digital ads, posters, pull-up banners, website graphics, holiday cards, donor letters, and program books. Most importantly, I have acted as a creative director for the Philharmonic for the last two seasons, crafting the design that would travel through all concerts and events for the entire year.
The Binghamton Philharmonic has worked diligently over the last couple years to bring new and innovative concert experiences to the Southern Tier of New York. I have worked with the Philharmonic to create designs that are as interesting as the concerts they offer.

I picked up hand lettering in my sophomore year of college, and have been doing it as a hobby ever since. It allows me to continue to learn about design outside of the classroom, and gives me a creative outlet. I have created countless works utilizing hand lettering and illustration, with the ones included in this section being some of my favorite personal projects.

The Beethoven Project is a community celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday. The Southern Tier of New York is celebrating the life and works of one of the most influential composers of all time through a series of events lasting from September 2019 to December 2020.
The creation of this project, and it’s logo, were proposed to me by The Binghamton Philharmonic. Their ambition was to perform all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies over their next two seasons.
When beginning my research and sketching for this logo, I knew I wanted to incorporate not only notable parts of his life but also the initials for the Beethoven Project. I came up with two final sketches, one featuring an ear as a reference to Beethoven becoming deaf in his later life, and one featuring music notes as a nod to his illustrious career as a composer. Both logos were created to feature a “B” and a “P” somewhere in their design. Different elements of the two logos were combined into a final product that everyone was pleased with.
The Beethoven Project logo is now featured throughout The Southern Tier to promote the various events for this celebration.

Let's Talk is my senior thesis project. I believe that design can be an effective tool for education and social justice and created a website about comprehensive sexual education because of this. Aimed at middle and high school students who want to get more out of their sex ed than what the school system provides them, it offers a resource for anything they might need to know. From the basics of anatomy to learning about birth control, STI'S, relationships and gender and sexuality, Let's Talk know there are no stupid questions.
Additionally, there is a New York State map made to help young adults find resources in their area. Family planning offices, STI clinics and LGBT resources are the businesses the map locates, and provides one with the address, phone number and the website. One can sort by the kind of business they're looking for, or by county.

BoL is an Asian Fusion restaurant located in Ithaca, New York. This branding project began in 2017 where my coworker and I teamed up to create a logo for the brand new eatery. We ultimately came up with a logo that utilized both illustration (my part) and text (his part).
From there, I worked with the owners of BoL to create a design for their menu that would make the ordering process easier for everyone. BoL has an extensive number of options featured on their menu, which focuses heavily on customization. To highlight the customization while making the ordering process convenient and user-friendly, I created a checklist menu that could be handed to the employees after the customer choses their items.
In addition, I created a series of logos for the separate menus that highlight the food they feature. I used these individual icons to create a larger step-and-repeat pattern that is utilized as a background for their take home menu, as well as for social media purposes.

I wanted to create a geofilter for my hometown of Binghamton, New York using my hand lettering skills I’d developed in college. When I would use Snapchat in Binghamton, I was unsatisfied with the filters available. So I made my own, submitted it to Snapchat for public use. The filter is a ‘thank you’ to the city that raised me, and a small way to bring beauty to Binghamton.
