MasterCard’s goal was to create dining experiences for its cardholders worthy of the word “priceless”. Fifteen once-in-a-lifetime tables were created at inspiring locations like Chicago’s John Hancock Center, Dodger Stadium and Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. Each one with bespoke design at every turn.
I had the opportunity to design some of the menus that were part of these tables and pay tribute to each location. I also was able to go to the locations mentioned above and photograph the pictures displayed here. The events were such a hit, we eventually designed and developed a coffee table book as well.

I started this project to showcase the best of MasterCard's Priceless Ads. Next thing I know, it's all over McCann New York's stairwells and elevator doors.
Created pro bono by McCann XBC, the new English and Spanish-language television, radio, print/OOH and online PSAs encourage viewers to take the first steps toward obtaining their GED® diploma. The "Skip the Drama" campaign highlights how not having a GED® diploma can cause unnecessary drama, and situations like filling out a job application that seem normal and mundane can become nerve-wracking and intense when questions of education arise.

Concepts and illustrations for emojis that could represent what "Priceless" meant.
We explored anything and everything: from the use of the logos colors, food coming together, to crazy unicorns and babies in far away lands.
It was a fun experiment.
Priceless Cities OOH Ads displayed in Port Authority Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, Lincoln Tunnel, Bus Shelters in Chicago, LA and others.
I love avocados. I love celebrities. Celebrecados was born.
Most people don't get it, but I intend on making the big bucks out of this one. Big plans. See if you can guess who some of these are. More here.
This campaign was designed to connect people around the world and celebrate families, friendships and community during the holiday season.
Leveraging all available media, consumers were asked to share photos and wishes on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the #PricelessNewYear hashtag for a chance to have their photo appear on New Year’s Eve on the world-famous digital billboards throughout Times Square, including the huge Nasdaq and Reuters signs.
Thousands of photo submissions were received – many from around the world and many from people standing in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.
I wanted to give my coworkers a cute, personal gift for our holiday party. So I drew their faces and then transferred them onto wooden coasters for keeps.
They went crazy for them. And this is the most fun I've had making gifts, ever.
Pro tip: People that wear glasses are the best to draw.
I like identity design. I like food. My senior thesis combined these two passions. I decided to re-design some logos of some of my favorite NYC food joints and posted all of the process online.

Beautiful things happen when you team up with your creative friends.
I got to work with my good friend and fashion designer, Sofia Reyes Grimpel, to concept and create what is now her fashion collection to the world inspired by blueprints from the house she grew up in. This is the lookbook I designed for her and with her - as we both saw this project from start to finish.

I like it when people reach out to get their brand and website re-designed. They realize they need a fresh take and I chime in and work my magic. This is what I did for the website and logo for The Custom Project, a global image and wardrobe consulting service for both men and women.

The purpose of this "50/15" project was to explore 50 typefaces in the form of 50 White and 50 Black flashcards over the course of 15 weeks.
Being as obsessed as I am with The Beatles, I chose to do their 50 greatest songs. Each side of the box represents each band member's face designed in typographic elements.
I need to constantly create. Here's a selection of illustrations, side projects and explorations I've done so far that didn't fit anywhere else on this site.
Designed back in 2012, during our time at Parsons.
