Roam is a fictional quarterly travel magazine that focuses on one state per season, the location varying on the north, south, east and west of the United States. This summer's edition focuses on a southern state, Florida.The compass within the O in the banner changes direction according to the state the issue is focusing on.
Roam features 3 posters per issue. These posters are perforated for the user to tear out and hang on their wall. I also designed 3 covers for preceding and following issues focusing on Montana (N), New York (E), and California (W). This issue was printed and bound by yours truly at MassArt.
A Hue of My Favorite Things
Client: Personal Year: 2017 Role: Photographer, Set Decorator Discipline: Photography, Set Decoration
I'm a big fleamarket nerd. Every few weekends, I scour the greater Boston area with my mom as we search for eclectic anythings from the '20s, '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s... you get it. Here, I've showcased a few of my favorite vintage collectibles, organized by their color.
Room No. 237
Client: Personal Year: 2015 Role: Conceptual Designer, Graphic Designer Discipline: Research, User Experience Design, Interface Design
Room No. 237 is an online interface that allows a user to dissect Stanley Kubrick's The Shining through multiple linear timelines.
Since The Shining is so complex in terms of plot and film form, the interface allows for many possibilities. Through color, soundtrack and tension, the user can select a 30 second interval on the top three timelines to view information about the film at that point. Then, the user can view particular information for each character in the film, including dialogue, screen time, and name mentions. This information can be compared to other characters as well as the top information.

My passion for design loves to collide and intertwine with my passion for film. Collected here are examples of one-offs I've completed when feeling particularly inspired by a film.
Boston Children's Museum
Client: Personal Year: 2014 Role: Graphic Designer Discipline: Branding
Wanting to create a more elegant system that would attract both parents and adults to the Boston Children's Museum, I decided to take on the challenge of a rebrand. My system is mature enough to get the attention of a parent, but still playful enough to capture the interest of a child. Overall, the museum needs both of their approval.
I Love You I Love You!
Client: Personal Year: 2014 Role: Conceptual Designer, Graphic Designer Discipline: Artist's Book
I Love You I Love You! is a book using a letter accompanied by a secondary source. It uses ex-Nirvana member Kurt Cobain's suicide note, as well as his wife, Courtney Love's commentary on the note played at his public vigil.
The beginning of Courtney Love's commentary starts with "He always said he was gonna outlive everybody and be 120." Because of this, I used 120 pages in my book. 27 content pages (the age of Cobain at his death), and 93 blank, black pages. The rest of the back matter of the book, including end pages and book jacket, are black as well.
Kurt Cobain hated being famous. In respects to him, this book is designed to be the most average book size. Using "bad photocopy" textures, I attempted to tie in the look and feel of grunge zines from the time. This book was printed and bound by yours truly at MassArt.
