As VP, Creative Director of the Classroom Magazine Group at Scholastic, I develop original design concepts for both print and digital platforms. With over 10 years of experience in designing to motivate students to read and learn, Scholastic non-fiction book collections, magazines, interactive games and videos provide teaching resources and support curriculum standards for elementary, middle and high school students and their teachers. 

My expertise is providing clear direction and constructive feedback to improve the creative process and workflow. I am a hands-on designer and manager of a talented staff of art directors, photo researchers, and video producers. I keep projects on budget and on schedule.


I enjoy leading creative teams, participating in new-business development from concept to launch, and interacting regularly with marketing and executive teams to communicate and promote design decisions made and receive feedback from key stakeholder groups. Teamwork and collaboration with editorial, marketing, developers and new technology make ideas come to life.
