When I was a kid, I wanted to be a food critic and a stuntman in movies. So here I am now, working as a designer.
I'm from Long Island, and I'm the only one in this town with the decency to tell you that instead of saying I'm from "New York" when asked, because honesty is important.
In high school I started learning design basically by accident, which ended up working out for me. Since then, advertising has become my life. Now I use my encyclopedia of useless references of a mind to sell stuff.
