I’m a New Yorker with a love for pizza, museums, playlists, Perfect Manhattans, and Phil Collins.
For the past 15 years, I’ve worked as a designer making brands, books, interfaces, and illustrations. (I now do client work through my design practice, Studio Frank.) My work has been recognized by the Art Directors Club, Print Magazine, and Commercial Arts, and select projects have been featured by The Atlantic, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Time, Slate, Monocle, and adopted by The New Yorker. (It’s a long story.) There was also that time my work popped up on The Colbert Report and then the other time a few weeks later that it showed up on The Suite Life with Zach and Cody. It was an emotional and confusing month.
Back in 2015, I helped co-found Abstract, a software company focused on supporting a modern, collaborative, and open design process.
I believe in wide curiosity, “good trouble”, and ending up where you’re not supposed to be. Everyone is a fellow traveller, and true enthusiasms take root early. I had it right when I was 8: libraries, drawing, dinosaurs, Greek mythology, basketball, Julia Child, and Snoopy are all awesome.
Okay, is that enough? Can I go now?
