One of the great functions of art is to help us imagine what it is like to be not ourselves, what it is like to be someone or something else, what it is like to live in another skin, what it is like to live in another body, and in that sense to surpass ourselves, to go out beyond ourselves.
- Adrienne Rich
First memories, the dearest.
As a child, I was absolutely mesmerized by the vast sky and soothing breeze – it was just so wondrous and vast. My most unforgettable memories would be those of the raw and colorful landscape and sky of Trinidad. Most dear and memorable.
Some people care too much, I think it's called love.

A Curious Type. Creative Leader Combining Design & Business.
I am the Executive Creative Director at S&P Global. I am the leader of a talented, global, Creative team and collaborator for the Marketing & Communications team. Dedicating over 10 years as the Creative Lead in the FinTech (financial technology) sector, I've embraced working at the crossroads of data and technology at both a start-up and a multinational corporation and continue to advocate on the behalf of creativity to impact business. My guiding principle is to DESIGN FORWARD - championing creativity in design, branding, and management.
In 2017, I completed my MBA at the Berlin School of Creative Leadership. I hold a BA in Art History and a BFA in Painting and Computer Art from Tufts University. I also attended AIGA & Yale, Business Perspectives for Creative Leaders Program in 2012.
Being active in the design and local community is important to me. I serve on the Arts Board at The Bronx Charter School for the Arts and was a Board Member of InSource as Digital Lead. In 2015, I was named GDUSA’s People to Watch.
I love to create. From seemly nothing to possibly everything.
