Recently, I've been leading the design and UX for a new civic tech startup called Heat Seek NYC. Heat Seek NYC is pioneering a new approach to heating dispute resolution for New York City tenants and landlords. We're building a suite of open-source hardware and web software that detects heating violations in real time. We use this data to track the issue, identify problem areas, and provide reliable evidence to ensure fairness in housing court disputes. We're currently working to finalize our first iteration of the product.
GREAT NEWS! We just won the battleground round at NYC Big Apps on the 19th, so many thanks to all our supporters!
I've just updated my site with new work and made it friendlier to mobile devices. Have a look around!
Now back in New York City, where I grew up, I have spent the last few years working as Art Director for an incredible company in the UK called Participle. Their work focuses on creating public services from the ground up that improve people’s lives.

After being awarded runner-up in Zizzi’s Fresh Talent scheme, I was asked to create large temporary window illustrations over the course of a week by hand while diners looked on. See the video here.
I've recently got into drawing on my iPad. Really loving it so far!
I finally got around to photographing the invitations I created for my August wedding. It was definitely the most enjoyable part of planning a wedding.
I recently completed the graphic design work for a project called Fresh & Wild by Schedia, a design group focusing on user–centered design. Fresh & Wild consisted of a series of lectures and participative workshops that Schedia developed and presented to encourage young designers and creative thinkers to adopt user-centered design methodologies in Cyprus. More on this soon...

A friend of mine, Sarah Rhodes, has been creating some beautiful jewellery as of late. She graduated with an MA in Jewellery Design from Central Saint Martins in July and since then has shown in the London Design Festival, Sotheby's and has just been accepted at the contemporary jewellery gallery Klimt02. I got to model her latest collection ‘Re-found’ which is derived from the collection and juxtaposition of texture transposed from found objects. Her work has also been selected for the 'Flux' Brilliantly Birmingham jewellery exhibition running from November to February. Please note however, I do not come standard with the jewellery.
