Biographical Profile

I grew up with one foot at the Jersey Shore and one foot in New England. I have lived in the Boston area for the last 25+ years. After graduating from St. Michael™s College in Vermont with a degree in Fine Arts, I returned to my native New Jersey to earn a Masters degree in Fine Arts at Montclair State University. There, I was granted membership in The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. My professional experience includes a career in design as a nationally-recognized textile designer. My designs have been reproduced and marketed nationally on rugs, fabrics, wallcoverings, linens, clothing, dinnerware, paper and many other products. During that time, I also created a book of wallcoverings and coordinated fabrics that were also marketed and sold throughout the country. I continue to illustrate, design, decorate and use my creative talents in many ways. Presently, I run a design, organizing, and staging company which I co-founded several years ago.

I am thrilled to be a part of this institution. Helping students strengthen their skills and support their development as they pursue their academic and career goals in the arts is very gratifying.  I enjoy working with the students here at Endicott and aiding them in their paths toward academic and personal success.

I am married with two adult children, a daughter who works in the entertainment industry in New York and a son who presently attends college in Boston.

I enjoy tennis, yoga, skiing, snowshoeing, visiting museums, travel, my dogs, my friends, my family, and walking, especially along the shore.
