Net-a-Porter has a live tracker on their websites that shows what customers are putting in their carts worldwide. This opener shows only a fraction of the items shopped in 30 minutes around the globe, simultaneously in all time zones. A story detailing where the high-fashion online retailer came from and where it's going, in New York Magazine's fall fashion issue.
I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to work with the very talented photographer, Pari Dukovic, to design an identity and website showcasing his work. Check out the site here.
I got to work on a package which was a collection of ten stories of people who experience life differently than most. A morbidly fascinating read.

When Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 went missing last year, like many I was obsessed with trying to figure out what really happened. A year later, Jeff Wise puts forth his crazy (?) theory on what he thinks is a possibility worth considering. Read it here!

An infographic tracking all of New York's sports team's winning percentages each year. The white line shows the average, proving this year wasn't the worst in history.
My 5-year-old self would be ecstatic to know I got to work on a story about My Little Pony. But really it's about the Bronies. No idea what I'm talking about? Read here. Photographs by the always brilliant Bobby Doherty.
I also got to work on a story about how Emoji is affecting our use of language.

Recently worked on a story that is a controversial topic: ethnic plastic surgery.
I recently worked on an exciting spread where we caught a majority of the most famous chefs in NYC in a bar celebrating Daniel Boulud's birthday. Finlay Mackay composed the photograph excellently, and I had the fun challenge of annotating it.
I also got the chance to work with the talented illustrator Kristian Hammerstad to depict the story of Steve Cohen, a former Wall Street shark.

The recent issue of New York Magazine features a look back at the last 100 years of music in New York City. Here are a few of the pages I worked on: An infographic timeline of the rise of bands in Brooklyn, a historic snapshot of the 1964 NCAA championship and a young boy's five-day adventure showing the city through his eyes (illustrations by the fantastic R. Kikuo Johnson).
Best Bets has been a staple section of the magazine since it's inception in 1968. As part of the launch of the biweekly issue, I redesigned the look and feel of the Best Bets and Lookbook spread. It's stripped down from it's previous version, with more 'bitsy' items of information.
After months of going back and forth about how my website should or shouldn't be (it's always the HARDEST designing something for yourself vs others), here is the new version at last! And also my first attempt of keeping an active blog/newsy section. Stay tuned.
I hope you enjoy it! (Oh and if you find any weird kinks or have any feedback, please let me know.)
