I'm a lover of many things: cooking + baking, modern typography, cookbooks, house plants, shades of turquoise, white subway tile, strong coffee, messy tacos, camping in New England with my fiancé, and every cat that ever existed.
Back in 2013 I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ohio University's E.W. Scripps College of Visual Communication with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Communication, focusing on Informational Graphic Design + Print Publication layout, with an added specialization in Magazine Journalism—Do I get points for having the longest major title ever? I think I should.
In addition to being a design lover, I am also passionate about everything that has to do with food—whether it's reading, cooking, discovering, eating or just posting photos of it! So, it was unbelievably lucky that I received the opportunity to combine my two passions and lay-out food magazines. (It didn't hurt that snagging a job in my exact field of study made my mother crazy happy—win, win.)
I currently work with the publishers, editors + photo editors to design the entire layout for four local food culture magazines in New York: Edible Brooklyn, Edible Manhattan, Edible East End and Edible Long Island, as well as one in California: Edible Marin & Wine Country. I've been a part of the design team for the Edible Communications team since August 2013 and am proud to say that I now design Edibles coast to coast!
From receiving the content, to putting together original layouts, to getting the magazine finalized and sending it off to the printing press (on time!)—I put my heart into each issue.Throughout this job I've really learned the behind-the-scenes process of turning raw stories and photos into to a tangible, printed work of art.
I am an organized, enthusiastic and detail-oriented person that works efficiently on my own but also thrives as a part of a passionate, creative team. I pride myself on having a reputation for turning projects around quickly and can bring an energetic vibe to just about any environment that I am thrown into.
I work remotely out of my apartment in Boston, MA, and love to explore the forests + beaches of New England, binge Netflix, and make ravioli in my [rare!] free time.
