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.

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.

Kappa Delta Phi National Affiliated Sorority
In college I joined Kappa Delta Phi National Affiliated Sorority, and served as the Public Relations Chair. I created t-shirts, flyers and recruitment materials for my chapter, giving them a recognizable brand on our campus. After graduating, I joined the National Board of the sorority, doing my previous job on a larger scale. I work on the Merchandise Committee, helping to design, purchase and sell branded materials for the sorority on a national level.

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.
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.
A class assignment. I created a magazine spread for people trying to transition into vegetarianism. In addition to the layout of the spread, I created the illustrations that are featured in it.
