Meet the Creatives is a podcast that seeks to bridge the gap between entry-level creatives and the industry's best. The show has featured guests from companies like Facebook, Google, Disney, Nike and more. Through the podcast, live events and various social platforms, I am building a community that connects thousands of entry-level creatives from around the world.

A design system created for 1840 Tavern. This historic Inn built in 1840 was a center for social life for more than a century and the scene of the farewell balls for recruits during the Civil War. I created an identity that paid tribute to the rich history of the tavern.

A distinctive green and gold, a nod to the proprietor's Irish roots, is used throughout the restaurant’s print collateral materials, including several menu designs, coasters, business cards and matchbooks. The logo is paired up with 'Room 205' a bold and expressive font,
designed by Simon Walker.

The logo is a revised illustration of the original Clarksville Inn mark. The updated illustration has a stronger horse and a new carriage that has the silhouettes of a woman, a man and a little girl – the restaurant's new owners – Kieran, Kim and their daughter Allie.

Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast is a bi-weekly comedy podcast hosted by comedian and actor Bill Burr. The Thursday episode, which came years after the initial podcast featured a brief check-in followed by a throwback episode. The Thursday show was unnamed for the first few episodes. Bill would often post the show just before Friday and he used to jokingly refer to the show as the "Thursday Afternoon, Just Before Friday, Monday Morning Podcast".

I worked with Bill's Producer Andrew Themeles to create a name and typographic solution that could help to differentiate the two shows. We decided to make the "working title" into the actual name of the show. Millions of downloads later, Bill still starts the show the exact same way and he still posts it just before Friday.

If you would have asked me what my dream job would be in college, I would have told you that I wanted to work alongside my favorite designer Jon Contino. Two and a half years later that dream would become a reality. I had the privilege of photographing Jon's identity and vehicle design for New York City's unmistakable mobile Americana grille – Yankee Doodle Dandy.
