A Bit About Me

I grew up in a small town outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I have always had a passion for being creative ever since I could hold a pencil (properly). I headed straight to a culinary technical school the following month after graduating high school. I was exposed to a whole world of flavors and techniques and was able to take those skills with me and worked at TD Garden in Boston, MA cooking for the Celtics and Bruins Teams. I then returned to school at UMass Boston to continue a career in the Arts field. I decided to take those Art skills and teach youth in public and private schools how to be creative in their own ways.

Today I have reached the end of my career in teaching after more than 10+ years and have decided to pursue my forever hobby as a career, because who doesn't want that? I started a small business during the pandemic and did a lot of free lance designing and client projects. Once the world decided to open up again, I made a big decision to pack my bags and start a whole new life in NYC and haven't looked back ever since. My motivation, drive and passion for building my creativity and design in my career is something I plan to always continue to grow and learn through all experiences.
