Born in Gastonia, NC to two incredibly talented and strong Lebanese immigrants, I moved a lot growing up. I spent time in Beirut, Washington DC, Baltimore and Cleveland before returning to NC where I obtained a BA in communication through Film and an MA in Interactive Media at Elon University. After college, I jumped around between Chapel Hilll and Carborro, eventually landing in beautiful Raleigh.
These days I’m still into the same things I was when I was a kid: drawing, playing fast music and skateboarding. I’m better at the first two and exponentially worse at the last.
I’m also into spending time with my 3 dogs, (that’s Crooks over there) and my girlfriend, wandering around art museums, digging around estate sales and flea markets, painting, admiring fine art (let’s talk Caravaggio and Dürer), riding my motorcycle, eating general tso tofu, and most recently hitting bags at the boxing gym.
As far as work goes, I enjoy exploring an idea and finding the most effective ways to bring it to life visually. Sometimes that means asking a lot of questions and solving complex puzzles. Sometimes it’s just having a conversation over a beer.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked to create thoughtful and effective marketing creative for some incredible small-scale brands, local companies, and individuals, but I’ve also collaborated with some of the largest companies in the world.
If you have a thought or a crazy idea you want to turn into design, or if you want to check out any corporate work I’ve done, feel free to reach out via the contact page.
