President & Designer of Risa Associates Inc., a multi-disciplined design firm. I have worked for a variety of companies and design firms in different areas of expertise. As a college intern at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL, I have taken into account the research involved in order to reach a particular demographic through merchandising and marketing. In addition, I have also studied nutrition and exercise science through being a certified personal trainer. Furthermore, I have also competed in a bodybuilding competition as a figure competitor. My passion for nutrition, exercise, and design has led me to go back to school at the Pratt Institute for packaging design. I have over 10+ years of experience with Adobe Illustrator. I have been using it since 2001 way before it was the Creative Suite. I'm fluent in most of the Adobe software as well as drawing, painting, and typography. I am currently the chairman of the Type Directors Club Student Group at Pratt Institute in which I have founded.
My degree in graphic design from SUNY F.I.T. is an A.A.S in communication design graduated with magna cum laude honors as well as a B.F.A. in graphic design also with magna cum laude honors.
